Confused What is aikido missing?

I was inspired to write this after reading the Compliments thread.

Many other aikidoka from my own club have either done another martial art or are thinking about adding to their aikido by going to something else.

Does this mean that aikido lacks something? Or does it mean that aikidoka are just more open minded to other ideas?

I know the lack of competition can cause aikidoka to wonder if they truely can deal with the pressure of someone really wanting to beat you down.

Thoughts?
