Doka of the Day - February 14, 2016
Whenever I seem to confront
Another dead end on my path,
That precious way of Izu and Mizu
I bring to mind once more.

                              - Morihei Ueshiba

Article: How One Aikido Sensei Changed My Life
Posted 1/05/2016 12:29am [from Jun Akiyama]

Here's a lovely article written by Ted Gonder entitled "How One Aikido Sensei Changed My Life (and 17 of His Life Lessons)" on his experiences with Don Levine (4th dan) who passed away in April, 2015. From the article: To get good at aikido, you have to practice the techniques so much that they become automatic, reflex. But technical proficiency doesn't make a great aikidoist. Great aikido comes from the the transcendence of technique: to move freely and masterfully, one must forget what's been learned. Don would repeat aikido’s founder: "Any movement, intact, can become an Aikido technique, so in ultimate terms, there are no mistakes. My advice to you: Learn and forget! Learn and forget! Make the techniques part of your being!"
