Is Aikido meditation in motion
Is Aikido a practice of Meditation in motion?
We practice meditation before and after class with our silence, some classes even add meditation practices.
We try to learn to extend energy while not focusing on transitory thoughts that interfere with our practice.
We even practice sounds of the Kotodama at different stages of our training to understand the connection of sounds to movement in the universe and all life.
Is the ultimate goal of Aikido to become a form of meditation in motion, an Aikido that meditates with movement?
