AikiWeb News: "It Had to Be Felt" Essay on Hiroshi Ikeda by Jim Sorrentino
Posted 5/10/2020 8:08pm [from Jun Akiyama]

The latest "It Had to Be Felt" essay, this time on Hiroshi Ikeda (7th dan, Boulder Aikikai) by Jim Sorrentino is now available for your reading pleasure. From the article: "As I would grab him or attempt to strike him, or as I faced him with a weapon, the physical interaction itself would impress on me that his experience and accompanying depth of understanding far outweighed mine. And yet, every time, he transmitted his understanding in a way that spurred me to work harder to improve, rather than discouraging me, or worse, injuring me."
