In this issue, key aiki principles of the art of aikido - find out below. Next month, we spotlight the unique Aiki Peace Week celebration - stay tuned!
Why is the study of aiki principles your key to success?
There are literally thousands of books, dvds, and videos on the martial art of Aikido. Most of them talk about historical facts, philosophy, and the practice of techniques.
We all know that a serious study of techniques is very important to Aikido mastery. And, we also know how important the history and philosophy is to our understanding of the art.
But, how can YOU be more efficient and...
add more power with less effort?
Well, to answer these questions, ask yourself... What did Morihei Ueshiba O'Sensei do on a daily basis in his own personal training?
The answer will give you an insight into what the founder of Aikido practised, and maybe more importantly, what he didn't!
O'Sensei said that the 2 secrets of Aikido are... misogi and kotodama.
Misogi deals with methods of purification of mind and body which are the essentials for a healthy lifestyle... deep breathing, using water for inner and outer cleansing, eating healthy organic food, beneficial exercise, experiencing good sleep and learning how to completely relax.
Kotodama deals with sound vibrations, and how chanting certain sounds balance and harmonise the body, mind, and spirit. Kotodama is the origin of spirit and substance, that divides into yang/fire energy and yin/water energy. The opposing force that holds the two together is ki.
Can you really develop advanced Aikido skills?
Yes... of course you can!
Anything worth achieving takes effort and commitment. To get to the true essence of Aikido you will have to spend some time practising.
You will need a knowledgable Aikido teacher to show you the basic techniques, and then you'll have to practise them to move on to an advanced level. You'll also be taught many variations of technique to help you become more flexible in your movements.
You will also need to make a serious study of ukemi, which is the art of receiving techniques. This helps you develop the skill to be physically and mentally relaxed and flexible. In this way you will learn how to fall safely, even if you are thrown hard, or taken by surprise.
You can speed up your skills by practising at home on a daily basis. It really depends how motivated you are to discipline yourself.
You'll begin to notice the Aiki principles that run through all techniques!
There are 3 methods of training...
1 - Learning techniques.
2 - Analyzing posture and form.
3 - Studying principles.
Many Aikido instructors only actively teach the first two. Why? They only feel qualified to teach what they have been shown by their instructor.
I have had many excellent teachers over the years, but always wondered why it took so long to develop real skill. So I made an intense study of all aspects of Aikido and many of the related aiki and healing arts.
I discovered that it is possible to speed up the learning process by focusing on the principles that make the techniques work. I have been studying this for many years and it has helped me to gain an insight into exactly how to...
fast-track your training to become an Aikido expert.
I made many notes along the way as I discovered more principles, and after years of pressure testing I have developed a unique ebook software collection that will show you exactly how to increase your skills.
PLUS... I have just included, absolutely FREE, my New 2 hour videos. They go into great detail on principles of Aikido and self defence that you just wont find anywhere else... you really don't want to miss this!
Why 2 hours of free video?
I shot the video with average equipment, and the finished quality was not what I had hoped for. But the content of the videos are truly unique and include rarely revealed principles. You benefit by getting them as free bonuses instead of having to purchase them as I had originally planned.
In the future, I will reshoot these videos in HD quality, but have been so busy with other projects, I just haven't had the time.
