Re: Poll: Is aikido suitable for absolutely everyone to learn?

I agree - some people just don't agree with the philosophy behind the art, and IMHO cannot learn Aikido. They can learn how to twist techniques on their practice partners, how to attack and how to roll, but they never get beyond this.

To me Aikido is more than a set of physical techniques.

But show me any two people who agree on a definition of what Aikido is...
