Re: doka

Hi Kevin.
All Doka are poems of the way. Spiritual pointers used by Masters of practices such as Zen, Buddhism, Taoism, etc. Referred to traditionally by those in Martial disciplines who have themselves become masters of an art and refer to the spiritual nature of what they are describing having transcended the physical.

This you probably already know.

So if you follow the way then remember you too are a Doka.

Thus are we truly Aiki Doka.

Peace. G.
