Is Aikido "Hard"?
I was reading on another board where an aikidoka stated that long term commitment to aikido is hard.
I would describe it as interesting...maybe challenging...but hard?
For me that provides a slightly negative connatation.
Aikido requires patience and humilty and courage. It seems like a wild adventure without ever having to go look for it. People travel to mountain tops to find what I have found in Aikido....
