I've just created a new, experimental "Off-The-Mat" Forum
here in the AikiWeb Forums, designed to allow discussion of using aikido principles outside of the regular dojo settings.
I'm hoping this forum will allow those folks to discuss how they've extended their aikido practice into areas such as mediation, law enforcement, spirituality, and such. Of course, discussions on "everyday" applications of "off-the-mat" aikido in everyday life are quite welcome, too.
However, please remember that this is still an aikido
forum; the discussions in this forum should have explicit pertinence to aikido and its principles. If the topics veer too much, they'll be moved to the Open Discussions forum.
With that said, I hope this forum will enable some interesting discussions!
