Re: Bowing in aikido
hey manos, what drew you to aikido then? cool flips and throws? a good steven seagal movie (truthfully, that's what did it for me)?
any martial arts school, dojo, dojang you visit will have some sort of ritual bowing and set uniform. you can[t get away from it.
westerners shake hands. people from the east bow. europeans kiss. its all a sign of respect...dogs sniff each other's butts.
