Re: Article: O-Sensei's Aikido by George S. Ledyard

Hi George,

Thanks again for writing what has been floating around in my head for a long time. You have an uncanny ability to do that.... To concur, in my own limited experience, the more I train, the less investment I have in a particular outcome of a given kata. I have always felt that the training is an opportunity to touch the void .....Once in awhile you throw, or are thrown, perfectly. No pain, no fear,no feeling of time, no concsious thought. You get up smiling and both you and your partner are thinking "Wow, what the hell was that!"

Warm regards,
