Re: Poll: Which would you rather have in an aikido beginners teacher?

Agree with Ruth. No matter how good my first teacher's aikido might have been (like I would have known the difference anyway) if he'd been an asshole I wouldn't have stayed.


"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
