A small film on David Lynch's Dojo

This is a small film clip on what surely is the most beautiful dojo in the world.

David Lynch, an old friend, has one of the most extensive aikido backgrounds of anyone alive. He was an uchi-deshi at the Yoshinkan in the 1960's, and also trained to high dan rank (always starting over) with the Aikikai, with Tohei Koichi and with the Tendokan. On another thread, I mused about the power of "collusion," the working together on the mat to accomplish "aikido," as an alternative "way" to that of the "aiki"/internal power that I, along with others, have been so fascinated with as of late.
David and his wife - and his dojo - exemplify this ideal for me. (Ahh, blissed out aikido, some may scornfully roll their eyes - David had a nikkyo that made the sweat explode off your body in a fine mist).

Re: A small film on David Lynch's Dojo

I don't eat granola too much but, too me, this is really one way to epitomize ones training...as the physical abilities subside a pinnacle is reached...

Thank you Ellis,

Russ

Re: A small film on David Lynch's Dojo

I knew there couldn't be two exceptional aikido dojos in New Zeealand; I saw this a while ago, and it might interest you (if you haven't already seen it):
