Re: Practice without tradition

Aikido is a culteral art. It is about respect, yin/yang, about being part of a group, a culture, a comunity, something bigger than the self. If you take away the traditions that helped create Aikido, you are missing out. Is is bad or wrong? I suppose not, but you're cheating yourself out of a greater experience.

Victims, aren't we all.
