Re: Self-defense, Wisdom, and the Way of Aikido

A while back I wrote about self-defense as the need to face and defend ourselves from ourselves.
Perhaps our biggest enemies are nor the external ones, but the internal fears and fantasies.
Perhaps Aikido is just another context/opportunity face both the internal and external insecurities we carry with us.
Training best translates to the internal/external context the closer they are to each other (state-specific learning).
We never grow within a comfort-zone.
Any thoughts anyone?

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
