The Way of the Sword

Now purely for a bit of inspiration for want of a better word I thought I'd share this short video. One of my favourites albeit away from technical, historical or intellectual. More art for you to ponder.

Enjoy.G.

Re: The Way of the Sword

Oh what a shame it's been moved for the powerful message within it IS the way of the sword.

Re: The Way of the Sword

Just watched both vids. Excellent. Thanx.

In a real fight:
* If you make a bad decision, you die.
* If you don't decide anything, you die.
Aikido teaches you how to decide.

Very nice and encouraging. I'm only 56, but I've already passed the point where my legs and hips got very weak and my body is now refusing to move. So I've already reached the point he was at at age 70. I must be doing better than I thought!

Really, a superb video.

Thanks.
