Many of us arrive at the door of aikido with a 'fighting mind', learning how to replace this with a mind of 'non-contention'

It happened the same to me, but I am glad about it, cause now can understand the real principles of the aiki, as they say before, the best way to know about it i to be in it.

When we born we are still connected to our environment, when we get older our body and mind start to harden, aikido help us to recover that connection, to react in a peaceful way
