Re: speed: good question from kohai

I like the marksman creed... its interesting. but I don't understand the half fast one... try as I might.

Anyway, just like to chime in with my thoughts.

Train aikido at the speed uke gives you his attack... at least that's how I think we could achieve the blend. Any other speed means you're imposing on the movement. What do you think?

Draw strength from stillness. Learn to act without acting. And never underestimate a samurai cat.
