I have struggled for years trying to find a universal statement of what aikido is at its core that could satisfy aikido students from all aikido styles. I have found several only to eventually cast them aside for something I liked more. I am presently using the statement 'it is aikido when nage is safe from counterattack and on balance while uke is vulnerable and off balance'.

yours in aiki
