Question Re: Poll: What color is your aikido?

I've seen some strange poll questions, but this one takes the cake . . .

I said white, because if you make a color wheel with all of the primary colors, and spin it fast enough, they all blend together and appear white . . .

Re: Poll: What color is your aikido?

During most classes, I'd say it's usually black and blue!

I believe Wendy Palmer Sensei asks students to try on "qualities". If I had more X what would it look like. This morning I tried on fire, earth, air and water while doing an ikkyo (while not trying to change the technique technically), uke and I found the four techniques radically different. Try it.

I believe the Linden Sensei exercise is similar using colors.

Will the same happen if I try on fire, earth, air and water while changing gear in my car?

mechanics are only part of the aikido picture, the ghost in the machine are where the different colours reside.

If you grab my wrist you don't know whether you are going to get 'rock' or 'water' - I do, the mechanics are the same, my mind (in conjunction with my body) creates your experience.

perhaps if you tried the exercises with a trusted uke, you too would have an experiential difference, just a thought,
