Re: It Had to Be Felt #41: Shirata Rinjiro: "Your Aikido Techniques Must Become Majestic"

It is a real pleasure to read your memories of sensei. I suppose that sensei touched each of his students in a unique way. Still, most everything expressed about sensei in this, your first posted column on Aiki Web, expressed in your uniquely poetic/romantic style, can be agreed upon by all who knew him.

I'm sure you miss him greatly. I certainly do. With every year of additional training I am awed by the depth and breadth of all that he so willingly shared. He left a profound legacy of humility, honesty, strength and love . . . Quite a lot to try to live up to!

Sincerely,
Allen Beebe

Re: It Had to Be Felt #41: Shirata Rinjiro: "Your Aikido Techniques Must Become Majestic"

Thank you Stevens Sensei for sharing your experience with Shirata sensei.

You talked about some of the things mentioned here during your seminar here in Israel, and I hoped to hear them again and with more detaild, and... here they are

Looking forward very very much to your next seminar here.

Re: It Had to Be Felt #41: Shirata Rinjiro: "Your Aikido Techniques Must Become Majestic"

Please note that the above two messages have been moved from the orignal thread (located here).

Again, here are the rules for contributing to the "It Had to Be Felt" column threads:

For those inclined to post, please re-read the introductory column before doing so. The rules for contributors, in short:
  • Only people who have actually taken ukemi the teacher who is the subject of this thread, may post
  • Simply post your direct experience of taking ukemi. This can include the nature of your relationship with them, as ukemi is more than merely taking falls.
  • Do not engage in back-and-forth with other posters, disputing their experience, or trying to prove why yours is more real. Just post your own experience. Trust your readers to take in each writer's account on its own merits.
  • If, for any reason, you find something to praise or condemn in anyone's description or wish to amplify your insights and perceptions, do so elsewhere. Start a thread about that subject in the appropriate section of Aikiweb.
  • Follow-up posts should be substantive, striving to equal the depth of the original essay. Simply agreeing with the writer, or a brief comment that, yes, the teacher in question was really powerful or had a wonderful shihonage or the like, are not congruent with the purpose of this archive.

Thank you,

-- Jun
