Doka of the Day - February 24, 2017
In these teachings listen most
To the rhythm of the strike and thrust.
To train in the basics (omote)
Is to practice the very secrets of the art.

                              - Morihei Ueshiba

Stanley Pranin, editor-in-chief of Aikido Journal, has helped contribute to the world of aikido through his decades-long dedication as a researcher and historian of aikido. According to his GoFundMe page: "After months of low appetite and poor health, Stan was diagnosed with advanced stomach cancer. Weakened by the disease, Stanís ability to work and further his aikido studies has diminished, but his will to fight is strong." Please help Stanley's medical fund by contributing to this campaign. And, please share to spread the news. My best wishes go out to Stanley as he enters into his recovery process, and to his family and friends as they provide support.
