Article: "The Gift of Danger: A Book Excerpt -- Mary Stein"
Posted 6/29/2009 10:13am [from Jun Akiyama]

Here's an excerpt from a book entitled "The Gift of Danger" by Mary Stein who has been practicing aikido for twenty-five years starting in her mid-fifties and is still practicing nearing age 80. From the article: "When I strike with full intention to make connection, my partner has to be skillful and accurate in responding to my motion. If he doesn’t move correctly, he’ll be hit. By striking sincerely and precisely, we provide our partners with an essential risk. This demand for sincerity goes to the heart of aikido." More information on her book may be found here.
