Article: "The Flow of Mind in Water and Aikido"
Posted 4/24/2009 4:31pm [from Jun Akiyama]

Here is an article entitled "The Flow of Mind in Water and Aikido" written by Charlie Badenhop who writes about his meeting with Senta Yamada sensei. From the article: "Rain, mist, steam, dew, snow, ice... water in all its various manifestations has a spherical mind. This mind of roundness is a key principle in the mind of non-dissension. In Aikido, we project a full, round presence to our adversary and flow with his movements. We offer no hard surfaces to bump up against and nothing to grab hold of."
