Aikido Master

Aikido should be soft and hard at the same time, but I prefer training soft without really hitting.



That's awesome!!Although, I must say, I'm one of the peolpe screaming at the TV during football. If my team's playing (Colts), I'm jumping up and down and screaming plays at them. I live for football season!!It's awesome that kickboxing is turning out to be so much fun for you!

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.
