I could not say wheter Aikido is necessary or not to Japanese people, since Japanese are naturally well-centered on their will, masters at keeping distance in their relationships and not so vulnerable to laziness, but at least from these three points of view it seems to me that Aikido is a discipline extremely necessary to Romanians who want to survive and to flourish in Romania.

In Romania there are many places where people train Aikido. Manabu-dojo is not nearly outstanding among these dojos, neither with regard of its history nor of its popularity.
