Practising is opening the eye of the body. Shiho Nage or Ikkyo are movements, steps, journeys along a road, a way, a manner. In the manner of our masters, we put our steps in their own steps, unveiling new landscapes. This is how I understand that Aikido techniques lead to a vision of Aiki.
Lets journey eyes wide open, with the eyes of our body. Lets journey within our body, within the link to our counterpart, within the dojo.
See tomorrow at John Luijten’s dojo in Brunssum for a 2 days workshop. I will teach there once a year, should we share the road together.
