There’s an aikido school near where I’m moving to. It will be nice to get back to training, get back into good physical health, and reconnect with decent human beings.
Aikido is a martial art with a strong ethical philosophy aligned around the principle of “ai nuke”, mutual preservation. It’s techniques were designed to subdue opponents without harming them. Some of you who are aware that Steven Segal claims to practice aikido. What he has done is bastardise aikido into something that is the antithesis of the aikido philosophy.
