Toheis five principles of Aikido

Thought I would put here the five principles of Aikido so that those who are unaware of them may know that the four principles of mind and body coordination are not the sum of his Aikido.

1) Extend Ki.

2) Know your partner's mind.

3) Respect your partner's Ki.

4) Put yourself in partner's place.

5) Perform with confidence.

When performing the actions of Aikido then not only do you have to have mind and body co-ordination but you have to learn these factors too. Thus comes about the journey of his Aikido.
