Re: My Own thoughts on Aikido
Actually the less reading and video viewing the better. Too much information is not helpful and distracts from your learning.
"Cast off limiting thoughts and return to true emptiness. Stand in the midst of the Great Void. This is the secret of the Way of a Warrior."
And now a few more quotes from O'Sensei:
"The Way of a Warrior cannot be encompassed by words or in letters: grasp the essence and move on toward realization! "
"Instructors can impart only a fraction of the teaching. It is through your own devoted practice that the mysteries of Aikido are brought to life."
"In your training do not be in a hurry, for it takes a minimum of ten years to master the basics and advance to the first rung. Never think of yourself as an all-knowing, perfected master; you must continue to train daily with your friends and students and progress together in Aikido."
"Aikido has no form - it is the study of the spirit. "
