Interesting to know.

I am to a great extent impressed with the article I have just read. I wish the author of glimmer.blogs.com can continue to provide so much practical information and unforgettable experience to glimmer.blogs.com readers. There is not much to state except the following universal truth: One of the most awkward things that can happen in a pub is when your pint-to-toilet cycle gets synchronised with a complete stranger. I will be back.

For those who are curious, there are five more steps bferoe black belt in my style: green belt, purple belt, and three degrees of brown belt. It's at ikkyu, first-degree brown belt, that things slow down. As my sensei put it, it's when things come to a screeching halt. If I nail every review from here on, I'm looking at about a year and a half bferoe I hit ikkyu. From what I'm told, it could be three to five years after that bferoe I'd be looking at black belt, dependent upon when Shihan Walker decides I'm ready. In that sense, it's almost like going through a college program, and thus it's not hard to see why some think the martial arts is a young man's game.

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.
