Sadly lacking in aikido sometimes. Aikido is not aikido without integrity. Technical expertise sometimes sees those with poor character promoted over those with integrity. It’s a bad outcome for aikido, and the students who suffer that teaching.
Again, aiki wisdom from a true master.
Interesting article. Genuine humility is important to self-improvement which is the underlying aim of doing the aikido the founder espoused. Aikido should be about being truly humble, not about learning to fake it.
