Aikido is stillness, motion, up, down, straight in, circular, soft, hard, fluid, choppy, hands on and moving with the energy.
We turn, bend, roll, blend, slide, hop, lean, straighten, near, extend, exhale and inhale.
The mat is there, near, soft, firm, rough and smooth.
We find peace here, and strength, connection and health. We find something inside ourselves that makes life simply matter more. We find others here, and we see them in a way that can't be seen anywhere else. We see their souls, their bodies, their movement and their stillness. We see all of them and then we see all of ourselves.
