Open-ended questions regarding the difference of Aikido from other sports are asked of the participants. Their written responses were coded, using qualitative methods. Based on coding of documents, labels, categories and themes have been generated. The second main part of the thesis is based on the discussion of those findings. The discussion between different levels, the comparison with other findings in Aikido literature was done.  Lastly and largely, the position of findings and possible arguments they can generate in the Philosophy of Sports Literature are discussed.
