The ability to talk about Aikido is not to be confused with the ability to do Aikido. One is much easier then the other.
I'm not quite sure why I am quoted there. I didn't mention either of these abilities. I did mention two other abilities though. The ability to infuriate people so much that they lose their centre and the ability to stay centred themselves.

One of the other things I mentioned was being judgemental. You know, the can I help you with that 2 by 4 sticking out of your eye kind of judgemental. The other thing I mentioned was being offensive. I have never heard a high-ranked budoka from any martial art put down another budo or another style or another budoka. Never. So I draw my own conclusions about the people who post derogatory comments.

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