I remember a few funny things from when I started aikido. One was "relax, just relax" , and the other one was "if you can learn to maintain your posture at all times, you've learned the secret of aikido."

While this is a pleasant little over-simplification, it's something I continuously try to monitor in my practice, and certainly our instructors admonish us when we fail to do so. ("Back straight, don't lean, heel on the mat, straighten your leg.")
