Re: Is your Aikido as a Martial Art up to Reality?

Actually my initial point was not referring to the spiritual side of Aikido at all, it was referring to the state of mind that one needs to be in to survive an aggressive encounter. If your mind is not into discharging the aggressor with all your being then your Aikido skills, or boxing skills or Judo, whatever... take your pick, will not be as effective as it can be.
