Re: In relationship with aikido
When I just started, I tried to convert all my friends to my (then) new-found hobby. But as the years pass, I found out Aikido can remain important to me, even if most of my friends (and my wife) find no interest in it.
Some people are attracted to M.A. some of them are attracted to Aikido, I wish I could explain why, but I simply can't. Practicing in Aikido should not become the most important element in your character, one should maintain his involvement in society as hard as this can get at times
