What do you think Aikido is.

The way World War Two ended for Japan was the beginning of the end of the martial aspect of Ueshiba's martial art. Two atomic bombs and his country being occupied by a foreign power caused him to hide his martial art as a way of love, peace and harmony for the world to unite under. This got away from him as people believed the cover story that Aikido was a martial art that was not martial. Modern day Aikido is; personal developement, healthy exercise, a social club, a philosophy of life, a religion. It is anything but martial.
