Seiser Sensei is right, there is a "realm of Takahashi" within the realm of Aiki that is expansive, reaches far and sees many things, but also reminds us where each of us is standing as individuals.
It makes life more enjoyable whenever we share this point of view, and furthermore it makes difficult things seem less difficult and seemingly impossible things possibly ... possible. And within this realm are some of my friends who no longer train but who are still part of the realm of Aiki. I'll be sure to let them know, even though some don't, or rarely do, use computers
Maybe there is some connection between the name and the silver bridge? Or have his occasional puns had a subtle influence on our minds?
