Re: Politics in Aikido

I cannot say I have been universally made welcome at local dojos which are not affiliated to my own group. Due to political differences some of my erstwhile colleagues no longer associate with me.Having said that maybe its not a political thing , maybe its my Cary Grant / Alain Delon charm /looks that they envy?Either way who cares? Aikido might well profess to unify people , but I think this is in a ideal world. Sad to say the world is not ideal.
Cheers, Joe.
