Re: O' Sensei's View on Sword Training

I agree, I was suprised to read it. Here it is, I just found the poem,

Qouted from "Budo Training in Aikido (Best Karate)" by Morehei Ueshiba.

What use to lean this sword work or that!
Cut off all thought of useless things.

This and that
Sword word you may learn
But for what?
Just completely
cut off thought [of useless things]

This poem is what made me post.
