My bottom line is still unconcerned with those that are casually dismissive of Aikido due to their ignorance of it.
Daren I agree wholeheartedly. People who merely wish to stand and say 'aikido is sh*t and so are you' can have all the empty space they require to puff themselves up - I just get on with my training. Why on earth argue?
Better to be the tossee than the tosser, in cases like that.
