Re: Why did O'Sensei create aikido?

IMO, Ki ( the life force/power of the Universe) is the center of Aikido- the root, the source.AIKI- the goal, Do- the way. Osensei was a martial artist, so he used martial arts to find/connect to Ki to be harmonious with the Universe. Were he was a musician, Aikido would be music to connect with Ki and we'd all be practicing Zen music, etc

Only between a single breath is Yin/Yang in harmony
