I've changed. But I can not say wheter I changed because of Aikido or took up Aikido because I changed. I know that through years of various MA's I was looking for something that I didn't find until I walked into an Aikido-dojo.
I guess I was ready to change and Aikido became a strong influence upon the direction my life took. I can not honestly say that I 'live' Aikido, but it definately has a big influence on my life.
