Re: I have a good question for all your aikidoists

Quote:
I was simply attempting to process the thought that because we study Aikido, does not necessarily produce that standard in all of us ,
Just currious...what pursuit (physicall, mental, whatever) DOES produce the top standard in ALL of its proponants? I can't seem to think of one...martial or otherwise. Of course there is variety...of course there are differences. Aikido is not monolithic. Different teachers, dojo, organizations all have differing standards, differing goals, differing views on what is important.

I'm surprised that this wouldn't be obvious...
