Where to find Aiki

I was doing some reading about Kano Sensei, the founder of Kodokan Judo. I found an interesting statement.

"Although he was a man of many interests, Jigoro Kano always thought in terms of Judo. To him, a kyudoka was a Judoman using a bow and arrow and a kendoka was a Judoka with a sword."

My personal beliefs reflect this idea. I search for Aiki in every range of human conflict. Whether it be with the hand, sword, email arguement and rowdy classroom, I believe there is a way to channel that energy into a more productive end.
