Article: "The Enlightening of Aikido"
Posted 4/17/2014 4:15pm [from Jun Akiyama]

Here's an article entitled "The Enlightening of Aikido" in the Kyoto Journal that highlights Jacques Payet's experiences training under Gozo Shioda in Japan. From the article: "One of the reasons I’m teaching the way I am now is because I have seen Shioda Gozo in two aspects of his life. The first one was when he was in his sixties. He was still very vigorous, his technique was extremely powerful and in those days it was quite ferocious. When you approached him he was very nice, but you could sense danger."
