This article entitled
"60-year-old aikido instructor teaches 'the art of peace'"
highlights John Smartt sensei in Stockton, CA, who is about to turn 60 years old. From the article: "Self-defense is the by-product of doing it, not the focus of aikido," Smartt said. "At the low end, (aikido philosophy) is 'do no harm.' At the upper end, it's 'love.' The purpose of learning it is to love and be loved."
