"The Flow of Mind in Water and Aikido"

Here is an article entitled "The Flow of Mind in Water and Aikido" written by Charlie Badenhop who writes about his meeting with Senta Yamada sensei.

From the article: "Rain, mist, steam, dew, snow, ice... water in all its various manifestations has a spherical mind. This mind of roundness is a key principle in the mind of non-dissension. In Aikido, we project a full, round presence to our adversary and flow with his movements. We offer no hard surfaces to bump up against and nothing to grab hold of."
