In A-to Z April 2016 April: Aikido from A to Z Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #229 New 03-27-2016 12:33 AM
[Note: Hi. I've missed you all! I have been blogging right along at GrabMyWrist.com, and have added tons of content to my completely revised site. It's been my intention all along to mirror my posts here, too, but I got behind for a good while. Now I'm finally getting back to that.]

During April 2016 I will be participating, along with hundreds of writers around the world, in the 7th annual Blogging from A to Z Challenge. Each day (except for Sundays) I'll be posting thoughts on a topic beginning with that day's letter of the alphabet.

This series of posts will be appropriate for anyone with even a casual interest in Aikido. That is, they will not be technical, how-to, or minutiae about the art, they will be highly accessible and inclusive. I hope you will share them with people who might be interested in the art. And please jump in and share your thoughts.

Here's my current list of titles (subject to change, of course).

A - Aikido - Practicing Harmony - A Good Idea for Bad Times
B - Beginner's Mind - The Power of the Empty Teacup
C - Community - Evolving Together
D - Dojo - The Place of The Way
E - Elephants and Blind Men - Aikido Is An Elephant
F - Fun - Joyful and Vibrant Training
G - Grounded - Being Settled, Stable, and Strong
H - History - How Aikido Came Into Being
I - Inclusion - Aikido is for All People
J - Japan - Tradition, Language, and Culture in Aikido
K - Kihon Waza - Practicing Basic Technique
L - Life Lessons - Taking Aikido into the World
M - Mastery - The Endless Path
N - Nage and Uke - The Relationship Between Partners
O - O Sensei - The Founder and His Vision
P - Posture - A Proper Stance, On the Mat, and In Life
Q - Qualities - Discovering and Developing Our Better Selves
R - Ruthlessness - Clear, Compassionate Communication
S - Sensei - What It Means to Have a Teacher
T - Testing - Taking It to The Next Level
U - Ukemi - Learning to Roll with the Punches
V - Violence - Controlling Our Own Violence
W - Weapons - Refining Technique, Forging Spirit
X - X Chromosomes - Being a Woman in Aikido
Y - Yin and Yang - Receptive and Assertive Qualities
Z - Zanshin - Ongoing Awareness and Connection

I hope you'll come along, beginning Friday, April 1st!
