Re: Competition in Aikido
Everyone is entitled to their own form of practice. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion too.
Aiki LV may feel that my practice is self-centred and selfish, that is up to her. She may decide that because I train differently..it is no longer Aikido but just a sport, that again is up to her.
I can't honestly say that I am comfortable with some of the views expressed here. But there you go...live and let live I say.
And of course Boggle must be correct as well when saying that only Boggle's training allows Boggle to overcome Boggles faults. My training is much too self -centred for that and, in fact, makes me a worse person.
