Dojo rules in Japanese?

Does anyone have a link to (or care to translate ) O-sensei's rules for aikido practice in Japanese (romanji, kana or kanji is
fine)?

Ta,

Tim

Ta,

Here is the Japanese text of each 'rule' followed by the hiragana text. An English translation appears in Kisshomaru Ueshiba's "Aikido".

「合気"ケ練習上の心"セ」
あいきどうれんしゅうじょうのこころえ

一、 合気"ケは一撃克く死--スを制するものなるを以て練習に際しては指"ア者の教示を守り、"kに 力を競うべからず。
いち、あいきどうはいちげきよくしめいをせいするものなるをもってれんしゅうにさいし てはしどうしゃのきょうじをまもり、いたずらにちからをきそうべからず。

"、 合気"ケは一を以て--怩ノ"--たるの"ケなれば常に前方のみならず四方"ェ方に対せる心掛けを以 て錬--≠キるを要す。
に、あいきどうはいちをもってまんをあたるのみちなればつねにぜんぽうのみならずしほ うはっぽうにたいせるこころがけをもってれんまするをようす。

三、 練習は常に--快に実施するを要す。
さん、れんしゅうはつねにゆかいにじっしするをようす。

四、 指"ア者の教"アは僅かに其の一'[を教うるに過ぎず、"Vが活用の--ュは自己の不'fの練習に依り初めて体"セし"セるものとす。
よん、しどうしゃのきょうどうはわずかにそのいったんをおしうるにすぎず、これがかつ ようのみょうはじこのふだんのれんしゅうによりはじめてたいとくしうるものとす。

五、 "々の練習に際しては先ず体の変化より始め'次強"xを高め身体に--ウ理を生ぜしめざるを 要す。然る時は"@何なる老人といえども身体に故障を生ずる--なく--快に練習を続け'b錬 の--レ"Iを'Bする--を"セべし。
ご、ひびのれんしゅうにさいしてはまずからだのへんかよりはじめちくじきょうどをたか めしんたいにむりをしょうぜしめざるをようす。しかるときはいかなるろうじんといえど もしんたいにこしょうをしょうずることなくゆかいにれんしゅうをつづけたんれんのもく てきをたっすることをうべし。

六、 合気"ケは心身を'b錬し至誠の人を作るを--レ"Iとし、また技はことごとく""`なるを以て"k に他人に公開し或は市井--ウ頼の"kの悪用を"くべし。
ろく、あいきどうはしんしんをたんれんししせいのひとをつくるをもくてきとし、またわ ざはことごとくひでんなるをもっていたずらにたにんにこうかいしあるいはしせいぶらい のいたずらのあくようをさくべし。

Best regards,

Peter, thank you very much, that's wonderful.

If one makes a distinction between the dojo and the battlefield, or being in your bedroom or in public, then when the time comes there will be no opportunity to make amends. (Hagakure)

That's not mine, it's from Yamamoto Tsunetomo's 'Hagakure'. A 17th-century nutbar
if ever there was one, and just the kind of guy to not make a distinction between his bedroom and being in public.

Another quote from him: "People who say that killing is distasteful are weak in spirit. I recently went to the execution grounds to try my hand at beheading, and I found the experience quite exhilarating".

I can imaging all these out-of-work retainers lining up to practice cutting off heads. Maybe we could try that now - give all the MacNinjas with their 'sharpened-iaito-of-death' something to think about.
