Re: Poll: In your opinion, what ratio of "martial" and "art" is aikido?

if 100/100 had been there I would have chosen that option as well, because taking either the martial or the art out of aikido leaves you with 0%.

the art is the expression of self, the martial is the medium for that expression.

I think the variable in the equation is the 'self' that is being expressed.
