Hi guys I'm really interested in some of the quotes I hear in aikido and have made some of my own, can't remember all, so many!
Anyway one I came up with this morning

"An attacker would have hate and anger whilst he/she attacked you, yes? aikido teaches balance, so to keep the balance you need to kill them with friendship or forgiveness"
-Louis Sanguy

Would love to here some you guys have come up with or have heard.

Re: Quotes

From a nice website. http://www.artsrn.ualberta.ca/aoki/K...tes/keiko.html

A great Zen master, Sawaki Kōdō, said, “Practice is like farting—only you can do it yourself; no one else can do it for you.”

And really, would you want someone else to deprive you of the pleasure?

Re: Quotes

One I said this past Monday night in class - I was having my students do an escape from an over arm bear hug then transition into O Soto Gari. My student (high school age guy) would roll his arms and shoulders forward as he needed to for the escape but then would kind of stick his butt to the side and kind of wiggle it to try to get out of the hold rather than "pop" his hips out and to the side. Without thinking I said "you need to pop your hips to the side. You're not a stripper trying to stick your (started with an "A" but to follow forum rules I won't cuss) butt out and shake it!" The student and the college guys he was working with had a good laugh (and he got the escape right after that!)!
