Re: Using Aikido Principles in Physical Activities

Ross, David,

Lats night I was observing a conversation involving several extremely intelligent University of Chicago students and became aware that they werent listen to each other at all. I posed the question, "How do you guys listen?". The room became quit for a long time and everyone looked confused before verbally attacking me in various ways. It was kind of fun though so I'm not complaining :-)

The "keeping the attack" idea I really liked and am going to go ponder. Thanks

Smile Re: Using Aikido Principles in Physical Activities

Sensei always taught me about the awareness an aikidoka should have not only mentally but through physical means. And this "presence of mind" is reflected in our body movements.

For example, I jog with 2 housemates every other night, theres a significant difference in our paces, but my trainning in Aikido taught me to control my breathing and to be conservative with my Ki. Thats why around our 7th lap they lose steam while I steadily keep my pace.

Also last sunday, I went to a mall where there was this sale, so it was flodded with people. There was plenty of shoving, and bumping, it took a lot of that awareness and movement control just so I could leisurely maneuver my way through the mall.

Love and peace!
