Principles and secrets of Aikido can benefit your skills, but many instructors do not include it in their traditional classes. The limited time they have available is usually devoted to the study of techniques.
These unexplored truths are the real essence to the teachings of Master Morihei Ueshiba O'Sensei, the founder of Aikido, who said...
" One does not need buildings, money, power, or status
to practise the art of peace.
Heaven is right where you are standing,
and that is the place to train "
Aikido combines practical self-defence movements with an emphasis on an extension of mental ki energy. The central philosophy teaches how to take responsibility for not inflicting unnecessary damage to an attacker.
At the core of the art is Ki and Hara.
Ki is the inner energy which you possess but rarely develop, that is stored in the hara, your centre of gravity in the lower belly. The aim is to focus your mind and body at this point to experience a calm mind.
Morihei Ueshiba O'Sensei often said that the two secrets of aikido are...
1 - Misogi (Purification of Mind and Body)
Misogi deals with methods of purification of mind and body which are the Essentials for a Healthy Lifestyle... pure air and water, organic food and nutrition, beneficial exercise, good sleep, and relaxation.
2 - Kotodama (Chanting the Sound Spirit)
The Kotodama U, which is the origin of spirit and substance, divides into two. Kotodama A, which is yang/fire energy goes up to heaven. And Kotodama O, which is yin/water energy goes down to earth.
The opposing force that holds the two together between heaven and earth has been called... ki, chi, prana, magnetism, vital life force etc. Vibrations of sound have the Power to connect spirit and form.
These two key secrets of aikido hold the essence of the art. Study and practise of these will boost your technical skills, and improve your life!
