What is "natural" about aikido? Is a toddler movement really "aiki"?
I just saw this really interesting article on the Aikido Journal website:
It reminds me of that saying "Masakatsu Agatsu," or "true winning is self winning," usually translated as "True victory is victory over oneself."
But now I am convinced that "Masakatsu Agatsu" means that "True victory is winning oneself" or "winning the right to be oneself."
And no one is more himself than an eighteen-month-old child.
