Re: OK to Challenge Other Arts / Defend the Name of Aikido?

speaking of ranks and the authority to teach Aikido

Is it right to engage on a challenge to other Martial Atrs disciplines?

and can you? (generally speaking) defend the name of Aikido when a walk in challenger comes in your Dojo when least time expected?

are you ready to risk your life for the love of the ART?

"Love and devotion" (pls. comment)

(*dully recognize Aikidokas Phil. Aikikai*)
Just remember what Funakoshi said... If it's not important enough for one of you to die for, then you shouldn't be fighting.
