For O Sensei, Aikido was something that was already there. Like the sky, earth or ocean, it was there before he was born and would exist long after he was gone
So if we run with that would it be more correct to say that O Sensei "discovered" aikido?


"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
