For The Joy of It

Why do we practice? At the end of class on Monday, Shihan was talking about practice. The day into weeks into months into years practice that those of us who have made Aikido part of our life all understand.

The why is an individual answer and I can only answer for myself. There is a joy in this for me, times where it all seems to come together, where I transcend the ordinary. They don't happen often,  but they serve as glimpses of the possible like clouds parting to let a climber see the mountaintop ahead.
"With all the moving energy of our life’s force, we practice the Way of Bu…
In Aikido we give voice to the song of joy of the whole universe."
--O-Sensei
