Sen mean initiative.

Sen no sen - is seizing the initiative.

Sen sen no sen is the highest level of the latter where one is able to detect your opponents intentions before they are expressed.

The vast majority of Aikido training is reactive (go no sen) but it is certainly not limited to that. In fact the goal of your training is to reach a level where sen sen no sen is possible.
