Short interesting speech

Thought I'd post a short video here of an Aikidoka giving a short speech. I found it fascinating, amusing, interesting and rewarding.

So just thought I'd share something I thought some might like.

Re: Short interesting speech

Thanks for posting that. One thing in particular that he said struck me as revealing...

"One day, I just changed how I thought."

Sometimes, it's just that easy... or that hard.

Re: Short interesting speech

Thanks Graham,
I liked most when he said :that nothing is impossible.
We have in Spain Iņaki Sanchez, 6 Dan with only one hand too, I went to a seminar and it was beautiful how he did the ukemis and how he managed the sword work. Here a short video

Re: Short interesting speech

Alejandro Anastasio is a truly gifted and warm human being, Living, training and teaching in Boise, Idaho he works as a commercial artist, but his true love is the Aikido he shares with his students and peers.

An expert with the Didgeridoo, he entertains as he instructs, the wonderful message of Aiki to all fortunate enough to meet him. His children's classes are beyond fun, and serve as a teaching tool for us all.

This venue was the Aiki Follies segment of the Aiki Summer Retreat in Meno Park, California, where true magic happens every year.

Thank you Dro, for the upbeat, generous and inspirational example you give, and sharing the messages of the Founder's vision and gift of Aiki to the world!

Hi Carina. Yes he looks very good. Nice movements, good flow, good definite completions, excellent. Another for my library.

Glad everyone liked the post. When I watched it all I could do was silently nod and only one word came to mind: RESPECT.

Regards.G.
