Re: Finding a live practice for Aikido.
I love how your article seemed full circle. You ventured out, explored, but ultimately it all came back to aikido practice. I like how honest you were with yourself about your practice. Delusion runs rampant in many training experiences I've had. I've even taken instruction from people who they themselves are convinced that it is all hogwash, but continued in Aikido for the social, or person accolades they were receiving.
I love how life rewards and reveals things to those who pursue things in sincerity.
