Does anyone think that the esscence of sport, is one and the same as aikido? I am thinking of the ability of some sports players to make the games they play appear simple and effortless, usually by not doing things that would obstruct that end, rather than by actually doing more.[/QUOTE]

Not just sport, art, business and just about any human endeavour. Mastery is usually hard won over a long time, learning to 'not do' is more difficult than 'doing'.



Success is having what you want. Happiness is wanting what you have.
