As I said before, Aikido has nothing to do with brute strength, weapons, or war. It is the Art of Peace. Love is the essence of the divine. love, cosmically and individually, makes the world what it is. Our path is the universal path; to forge one’s mind and body on this path is the forging of the divine. Implement this, develop it into an irresistible force, and unify the world.
