Brian Kagen pick: “Aiki” and other terms, from aikiweb.com

“We have something like this from Ueshiba: ‘ I asked someone at my side who this person was. It was explained to me that he was the famous Tenryu who had withdrawn from the Sumo Wrestler’s Association. I was then introduced to him. Finally, we ended up pitting our strength against each other. I sat down and said to Tenryu, “Please try to push me over. Push hard, there’s no need to hold back.” Since I knew the secret of Aikido, I could not be moved an inch.’”
