Re: What the heck is Aikido???

Aikido is real fun.
If you want to use it as a martial art, it vanishes.
But if you need it, it is right there.

- at least on my level -

Re: What the heck is Aikido???

No one can be told what Aikido is.
One must see it for themselves.


No wait, thats the matrix, sorry.

Re: What the heck is Aikido???

It's annoying trying to explain how effective Aikido is when people think that martial arts are just about punching and kicking...

Nope, not just you!

Harmony does not mean that there are no conflicts,
for the dynamic spiral of existence embraces both extremes.
