Re: Using less force on a smaller person w/o being patronizing

Mark it's not a question of minimum force. If you use force there will always be someone stronger who can use more force. The point about aikido is that there is no force. It's not using force when you brush the hair out of your eyes. A baby doesn't use force. That's what aikido should be like.

we can make our minds so like still water, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life
