Aikido- what's the one thing...........
 
If you could only communicate only one idea about aikido to some one, what would it be and why?

It would depend on who I was communicating to, and why.

Onegaishimasu, I would express the standing bow with or without saying "Onegaishimasu"

First word that comes to mind, would be "physics". Though I suppose, depending on perspective, that can be said for all Martial Arts.

Alignment...and by that, I am not just referring to physical alignment, but alignment in a variety of ways.

For me, it would be that aikido uses a set of principles that when applied can create harmony both on and off the mat.

coming from an AJJ perspective I would say the power of yielding. It is the principle concept that has led me to become a Jujutsuka. Blending and harmonizing are expressions of yielding and I believe with practice and dedication can become very effective forms of self-protection.
