Take Musu Aiki

“You and I and everything in this universe exist as a part of the endless flow of God’s love. Realizing this we recognize that all creation is bound together by the same benevolence.

To harmonize with life is to come into accord with that part of God
which flows through all things.

To Foster and protect all life is both our mission and our prayer, and we call our path
‘Take Musu Aiki’”.

Morihei Ueshiba
Founder of Aikido

Aikido: Practice, Purpose, and Potential

At the beginning of the year it is natural for us to consider the purpose of our training.

Sensei Patrick Augé, Shihan of Yoseikan Aikido has written a thought provoking essay as a New Year's message. He discusses his relationship with his own teacher and the relationship of a student to other students in the dojo as well as a student's personal development during training. Check it out; I think it will give you something to think about. Click here to see the essay.
