Re: Respect for the Art of Aikido

The so-called "spirituality" of aikido has never been something that I have been able to put my finger on. I always thought that the spiritual aspect of aikido came from the "doing" and nothing else.
The spirituality of aikido (or any martial art) is about yourself. I think it is that simple (no cockiness intended )

I am sure you had been frustrated at various time with yourself, your uke or even with your instructor from the "doing". Ever stop to wonder why?

For the believers, you can truly find God when you have found yourself.
