Re: I want my Aikido to Matter
The title grabbed me, but then it sort of dumped me off the cliff. "I want my aikido to matter" made me think that I was going to read an interesting exposition on what it meant to you, for something to matter, and what characteristics your aikido would have to have in order to matter. Instead, at the point where you were apparently about to expound on this, you said, "I don’t look at Aikido as so much as a series of prescribed moves but as a method for teaching me good movement.". OK...but (and I'm not trying to be obtuse) I don't see where that has anything to do with aikido "mattering". Maybe you can clarify?
