Re: Interview with Paul Linden Sensei

Thank you. That's a very interesting interview - good questions too.

The concept of aikido for peace - using budo for good - is very attractive and powerful. Jigoro Kano Sensei the founder of judo had the vision of judoka everywhere using the principles of judo in all facets of their lives so that the whole of society would benefit:

Jita Kyoei 自他共栄 we together with other people will flourish (mutual welfare and benefit).

Aiki-Extensions and International Aiki Peace Week look like great initiatives. I hope they continue to grow.

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