Yesterdays lesson was completely focussed on the concepts of Shu Ha and Ri. In the special lesson for senior students sensei gave a very long explanation about the normal learning proces in Aikido and the effects this has on how one should behave in the dojo. Using the western philosophical concepts of doxa, sophia and idea he was able to clarify for a lot of the senior students what we are looking for in aikido, and maybe more important, in which way we do this.
