We live in times when finding a personal center and the ability to experience life with a sense of joy and flourishing is important and challenging. Many people are looking to find the balance between a sense of competence and well-being in their daily lives. – Bob Noha
In Aikido we never attack. An attack is proof that one is out of control. Never run away from any kind of challenge, but do not try to suppress or control an opponent unnaturally. Let attackers come any way they like and then blend with them. Never chase after opponents. Redirect each attack and get firmly behind it.
– Morihei Ueshiba
