MaybeThat is definitely not my message. I personally would like to study aikido, and I am afraid I probably missed my chance to train with some highly skilled fellows when I left San Francisco. I regret that, but life is busy and time is limited. I think it would be time well spent though, although I recognize my body at my age might object to all the falling. Maybe I will have an opportunity yet to do so.
But my position is definitely NOT that aikido sucks.
