I wish I could remember the thing correctly this early in the morning but someone said

Karate makes you aggressive

Judo make you stupid

Aikido make you arrogant.

My appologies to the Judo players.
yes, Peter, its the statement from Minoru Mochizuki if i'm not mistaken. but my sensei use the word 'passive' instead of 'stupid'.anyway, he also said that many aikidoka are indeed humble, but somehow they also arrogant. That's why, still according to him, taking ukemi is very important because being uke helps you to beat your ego.
