Aikido is a traditional Japanese martial art that emphasizes mind-body harmony to deal and respond appropriately to situations ranging from the life threatening to those that occur in every life.
~ Statement describing Aikido on my dojo’s flyer.
Not a bad place to start.
The association that my dojo(s) belong to.
Morihei Ueshiba O’Sensei (1883-1969) quote:
As soon as you concern yourself with the “good” and “bad” of your fellows, you create an opening in your heart for maliciousness to enter. Testing, competing with, and criticizing others weaken and defeat you.
