« Aikido as a way of being | Main | Training log 10/25/2004 #1 »



This is great info. Thanks for sharing. The Martial Arts we pass on are our legnecy to our students! For many years (in some cases hundereds) Martial Arts were passed from father to sons & daughters why not treat our students like our extrended family.Therefore it is important to know, be-friend & care for our students. The word Sensei translated by some as teacher, may also be translated as the one that came before .

Aikido Quotes

  • O-Sensei: My students think I don't lose my center. That is not so; I simply recognize it sooner and get back faster.

  • Morihiro Saito Sensei: Aikido is generally believed to represent circular movements. Contrary to such belief, however, Aikido, in its true KI form, is a fierce art piercing straight through the center of opposition.

  • Furuya Sensei on Swordsmanship: Letting go of the idea of “sword” and the idea of “action” is the meaning behind “willow in the gentle breeze.” When the slight summer breeze blows, does the willow follow the “nature of the willow,” or does it follow the “nature of the breeze?” Please think about this - in this lies the essence of sword technique.
