raccoon - I think the way to deal with too many questions is to apply aiki principles and avoid them until your ready to deal with them!!

Yes, and the way to deal with sneaky aikidoka is to keep hunting them down until they are too tired to even tenkan. So Cato, what's YOUR code like?? Let's hear it!!

Racoon-Just to be clear, I never said I was an Aikidoka, I studied Aikido, and use the principles, but to say I am an Aikidoka cheapens the art, and frankly lessens what I do. Saying that, remember, if you work empty hands, we are all doing the same thing, with a slightly different approach and flavor. For me personally, I don't want to be labeled anything, except a Martial Artist.

One persons personal code is of no value to anyone else. That is if indeed we can have a personal code.

What is important is the ethics of the art they study. Or at least, the interpretation they put on the ethics of their art.

On a more general level there is a code of conduct that most people would see as desirable in a fighting man (or woman). Such things as loyalty and bravery in the face of overwhelming opposition are more or less universally admired, even if they are apparent in people we despise.
