Re: The purpose of Aikido?
Oh be nice. Our words outlive us here, and so do the questions and opinions. Answers do change over time.
I have been wrestling with posting something about impending war, religious motivated violence, and terrorism on this international forum. There are many quotes from O Sensei about "The Art of Peace" and Aikido having a role in creating and maintaining peace. Does Aikido, do we, have a role to play in world peace? What are you doing yourself out there?
