Re: The Word "Aikido"
" Yes, for me it remains a word, the definition of which is my own to ponder, the application of which is mine to own, even as I freely acknowledge others the right to do the same. Aikido is just a word, like any other, that takes its significance, relevance and impact on the way we use it in our dealings with others."
The first time I heard the word "Aikido" I was told it is a Japanese martial arts kind of like Judo.
Twenty six years later, after going through many different definitions I now tell people "Aikido" is a Japanese martial art kind of like Judo.
