The Five Principles, as Taught by the Founder
1. Aikido is the path which joins all paths of the universe throughout eternity. It is the Universal mind which contains all things and unifies all things.
Isn't it interesting that when the founder lectured about Aikido he discussed philosophy rather than technique.
If you were to explore the relationship of aikido and your actions or attitudes in life as part of your shugyo, how would it change the way you "practice" aikido?
These principles were passed down by Kisshomaru Ueshiba for our consideration.
