Re: Aikido in 70 Words or Less

Lets not rationalize with all the secondary mechanics which makes aikido work such as joint locking, blending, etc etc. Lets define aikdo as it is, as it was, pure and simple without extra generalizations:

Aikido: The path/way of harmonizing energy


Its all in the name. All of you are correct in one way or another but don't you think the very literal essence of the work "aikido" sums up everyones idea of what it is/ought to be?
