The lack of aggression in Aikido is an interesting point and come to think of it forms a small part of why I keep going. In an increasively aggressive world the few hours a week in the dojo are a nice rest from aggression and competition. There is certainly a spirit of cooperation and harmony between aikidoka in a dojo that you can't find elsewhere.

I have noticed that if I miss a week of Aikido for any reason, my own temper gets slightly shorter and tension starts to creep back into my shoulders.
