I try to consider Aikido as a part of life. It should not be a fanatical part of my life, but it should be a natural part of our lives as breathing or socializing with friends. It should not affect our family or our work, Aikido is not the life.
At the same time Aikido influenced my way of being and seeing life. This proves to be a major problem that prevents me to socialize with other people as it is customary in the “normal society”.
What are your experiences of Aikido training?
