Re: "No Ego in Aikido" News Article

Hmm...

"Quintans said no competitions are held because it is not a combative art"

I always thought it was because it was too dangerous and anytime you had competition you had to have rules so that the loser would live to compete again.

Otherwise, it sounds like they like what they're doing. And its good for them. The article doesn't represent Aikido the way I like to think of it though. However, considering we just went through a thread of how the media might hack what is actually said...who knows...
