Re: Aikido Solution to a Cultural Collision

Osu Sensei,

Perhaps this is why the principle of Aikido are thought of as conflict resolution rather than fighting. We can applied those context and content free principles anywhere, even to enter, blend, and settle cultural differences. Perhaps our diplomates and negotiators good benefit from training.

And in our training, it is a taking away the unnecessary and doing less that appears to often work the best.

Thank you for your thoughts.
