Article: Ashley’s Secret: “Aikido Chess”
Posted 10/20/2010 4:19pm [from Jun Akiyama]

Here's an article entitled, Ashley's Secret: "Aikido Chess" on chess grandmaster Maurice Ashley who is applying his interpretation of aikido principles within his chess playing. Ashley started training in aikido in 1998. From the article: "Like with Aikido, you are using your opponent’s movement/energy against him. "Okay, he pushed a pawn... now the two old squares it was guarding are no longer guarded... how can I use this to my advantage?" or "His bishop came off of the a2 - g8 diagonal and now his knight is no longer defended. How can I exploit this?"
