Three weeks of Aikido class and I absolutely LOVE it. Pretty slow at first, but you have to learn the building blocks before moving into techniques. I have read Aikido for Life by Gaku Homma and am currentlyy reading Aikido A Blue Print for Enlightenment. I think it was the philosophical aspects that really drew me to Aikido. That along with O'Sensei's writings..."I want considerate people to listen to the voice of Aikido. It is not for correcting others;I t is for correcting your own mind". I've seen several variations of the above, but the gist is the same. I am on a mission to correct the inadequacies in myself, my mind.
