Martial Arts, Modern Lifestyle Article

Column: Martial arts offer many benefits for modern lifestyle.

http://www.collegiatetimes.com/index.php?ID=5694

"On April 15, 1969, Aikido founder Morihei Ueshiba issued his deathbed words concerning the art he spent his life developing. "Aikido is for the entire world. Train not for selfish reasons, but for all people everywhere.""

Yes. Too many people focus on the "when can we beat someone up?" aspect of the arts. Developing a deep spiritual connection with yourself and the universe is far more important.

For YOU as an individual perhaps but, just because a person wishes to focus on another aspect of the art doesn't make their time effort and commitment any less valid.
