We Are What We Do

‘We Are What We Do’ is a community action movement spreading the powerful idea: small actions x lots of people = big change.

To that end, it is also the creator of the books, 'Change the World for a Fiver', 'Change the World 9 to 5' and 'Teach Your Granny to Text'. These books promote 130 simple actions to change the world. One of these actions is ‘spread the word’, which the organisation is doing through its Young Speakers project.

Earlier this year, 200 young people came together with one common aim – to change the world. Over an intensive weekend, they trained up on their facts, stats and world-changing delivery, learning how to successfully captivate, uplift and inspire an audience.

Said Sarah Varey, a student at Darwen Academy, in Lancashire UK...

I can see this being the start of something amazing and life changing – not only for me but the world. Being a Young Speaker means everything at the moment because it is the one thing I can really focus on to make my existence worthwhile. It makes me feel counted, as though I can do anything".

I know, if by being a Young Speaker I affect just one person, it’ll really make a difference. ‘We Are What We Do’ really gives me hope that I can and will achieve my ambitions of improving people’s lives and the society we live in.

The Young Speakers have already reached thousands of students by doing presentations in their own colleges, going to local primary schools and other community groups, as well as reminding relatives and friends of the power of their small, everyday actions.

Twenty-five members of the team have developed an interactive play, which is touring around London UK.

After the performance, the actors hold a workshop with their audience to get them to think about what actions they want to start taking. Then, they ask the children to do some acting around those choices.

Other members in the Young Speakers team are viral, virtual activists, corralling communities online through Facebook, MySpace and YouTube.

Together they are changing the world...


Aikido was founded by Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969), who gained the skill to control many attackers at will. He was unique in his ability to express his understanding of universal principles and laws of nature. He was also a very spiritual person who spent years in study, prayer and contemplation.

This is a martial art of Peace that develops in us an acute awareness of our surrounding environment, the ability to be calm, focused, relaxed and centred. Millions of Aikido practitioners around the World experience the positive benefits of... Aikido - The Way of Harmony

Harmony of Mind-Body-Spirit at the Aikido Health Centre



Last month we learnt that there are mental distractions to the learning process, and that the human mind learns new things by thought and repetition. So the fastest way to learn is to focus your thoughts on what you are doing and repeat it over and over again until it becomes fixed.

So, now we have established that you must control your mind and discipline it to work for you. I recommend that you focus your mind on one thing at a time, study it, learn it, digest it, and then move on to the next.

We will now take a look at how to successfully accumulate more and more techniques, in a way that your mind can get fast access to them.

I recommend that you take a basic technique and work on it over and over again until you become an expert on one technique. Then you just repeat the process with the next basic technique, and so on.

After a few months you will have many techniques in your arsenal that are far more effective and powerful than many students who have been practising for years hopping from this and that.

If you carry on this process over a number of years, you will become an expert in the art of aikido. This is how many of the top instructors have developed themselves to such a high level of skill.

Of course there is a whole system to learn to the point where it becomes second nature to you. Once you achieve this level then you become free to focus more on the aspects of aikido training that tend to be pushed to one side. These are the most interesting and important parts of the whole aikido process and the essence of O'Sensei's teachings.

But first how to gather many techniques in your mind - see below. You can Fast-Track your Aikido training skills and reach your peak performance levels with... The Ultimate Health & Harmony Secrets


First of all it is essential to study the basic techniques, to the point where you can perform them whenever your instructor requires it of you. Lets look at these basic techniques in an orderly fashion, and see how you can logically store this information.

Your mind, in many ways is like a computer, and that computer can be programmed to work fast, efficiently and without errors. Of course, as you know, if you do not set it up correctly all sorts of problems can occur.

So, how do you set up your mind to store lots of Aikido technical information? Well, you use a simple filing system of course!

And a good way of doing this is to create a Folder called Aikido Blueprint, which will have other folders inside maybe called... Aikido Rules & Etiquette, Aikido Breakfalls, Aikido Techniques, Aikido Principles, Aikido Self Defence, Aikido Freestyle and maybe Aikido Miscellaneous.

Now you have 1 main folder with 7 folders inside. Now you begin to build the information that you will store inside, and make it simple and to the point. Any info that is vague, put in your Aikido miscellaneous folder.

In order to easily remember each folder, you can associate them with colours, images, sounds, numbers, etc. This is how the memory experts do it in order to access the information fast. Of course if you are performing freestyle you will not be using your brain to access info, but reacting naturally to your circumstances.

Fast-Track your Aikido training skills and reach peak performance levels... A Massive Collection and Absolute Gold-Mine of Wisdom on Health


Now its time to open your Aikido techniques folder, and store the very basic techniques inside... Kokyu-ho, Kokyu-nage, Shiho-nage, Tenchi-nage, Irimi-nage, Kaiten-nage, Kote-gaeshi, Hiji-jime, Ikkyo, Nikyo, Sankyo, Yonkyo, Gokyo, etc.

Also inside this folder are two sub-folders, one with the attacks... Katate, Kata, Yokomen, Shomen, Mune, Ushiro, etc. and the other with positive or negative movements... ichi (forward, positive, active) Ni (backwards, negative, reactive).

There are a few more techniques and attacks to add to these lists, but I am sure you get the picture. Once you have all of this info neatly stores in the files and folders of your brain, and with practise you will have easy access to it, very fast... this is how I use it in my own personal training!

It may be difficult at first, but you are much less likely to stand there like a lemon with a glazed look on your face, when your instructor calls out your techniques... practise makes perfect!

Once you have all of these files and folders developed in your brain, and as you gather new information, you will know exactly where to store it for easy access. This way you WILL get to the point where more interesting principles and advanced techniques can be worked on.

You can be an Aikido expert, and the sure way to achieve it is to focus your mind, train hard and train smart. Of course you will greatly improve your speed of learning if you also relax deeply, enjoy your training and have fun.

Thats all for this month, and dont miss next month's newsletter on how to really 'Analyze Your Aikido Posture and Form' we spotlight some of the best ways to use your mind to speed up your learning process... stay tuned!
