How to become skillful?

I understand there will be no end to my training to become skillful. The interesting part is “the way” to become skillful. It is not a big “boulevard”, no it is a road along small places, interesting people and a lot of falling down and standing up.

Don’t take falling down too literally…….

Every time when I meet interesting people I try to listen with an empty mind. The purpose of this empty mind is to absorb as much as possible. That information has to become a part of my body………

Improving our aikido by practising and understanding our kata

When we do not improve something, it tends to degenerate and worsen as time progresses.

Therefore, I feel strongly that it is our responsibility try to understand more of how aikido kata or single waza were created as well as their objectives. Unfortunately, the creators have already left us a long time ago and only a few written documents or movies, mostly bad quality, are available or were left behind. This means we must depend on our intuition and understanding of our anatomy and kinesiology to discover the wisdom and true teaching from the valuable treasure, kata.
