Are you really practicing Morihei Ueshiba’s Aikido?
Or something else?
The Founder of Aikido penned (or brushed) six “Rules of Training.” These were often displayed on the wall of a dojo. These precepts have appeared variously in such publications as, “AIKIDO” by Kisshomaru Ueshiba, and; “AIKIDO, The Arts of Self-Defense” by Koichi Tohei Edited by Morihei Ueshiba, and also some exclusively Japanese Aikido publications.
Let’s look at Morihei Ueshiba’s six rules of practice.
At a cursory glance, they may appear simple.
Don’t be deceived by their brevity, however.
Because of their succinctness and apparent simplicity, it may be possible that these vital admonitions have been largely overlooked or have not been considered with the seriousness they deserve.
