The aikido spirit cannot utilize sen sen no sen. It's acceptance is not waiting to respond either.
that made no sense!
i thought the aikido spirit is screaming your bloody head off, then drill the other bugger into the floor, take his money, then go and have a peace and quiet dinner with beer and/or wine and/or member of the opposite sex and/or same sex. oh wait! that's just the normal spirit, but i think aikido spirit should be the same.
