WME-IMG to acquire UFC
Aikido Power, as anyone who has witnessed it can testify, is an amazing thing. You will see it in ki power demonstrations, or in any of the basic aikido throws. What amazes people is that the seeming complexity and majesty is all based on one, very simple, physics concept.
To better understand this aikido principle, one needs to read the sayings of Aikido Founder Morihei Ueshiba. “If your (opponent) tries to pull you, let him pull. Don’t go against (pull against him); pull in unison with him.” An inspection of this simple aikido saying will show the truth of this incredible Martial Art.
The universe, all of it, is made up of objects that move around. And, wherever there is motion, one look for the source of that motion. The source of all motion is the human being who instigated it.
The aikidoka stands still in the center of the universe, in the center of himself. An object (a body) moves in his direction. This is a particle of the universe, and he must not destroy it, but rather help it.
To stand and encounter the collision is to create impact, is to create destruction. To give way, to help the universe move, that is creative. Do you think God is more creative or destructive?
In a perfectly balanced universe, he is both. In the world of humans there is inflow balanced by outflow. Thus, the creativity of Nage, placed in conjunction with the destructiveness of Uke, creates a perfectly balanced universe.
Thus, to do perfect Aikido, to achieve true Aikido Power, one need merely put aside his own willfullness and be willing to enter into a perfect balance with incoming force. In this way the Aikidoka will eventually be lead to discover the intent and geometry of the idea, of the person behind the attack. You must not push away, but be willing to accept, pull in accord with, accept the universe as it is, and then you will find the true martial art not just in physics, but in your spiritual nature. And this is the real idea behind O Sensei’s advice.
Remember this in your Aikido practice: seek the truth of and live in O Sensei’s simple, but profound advices. Do not contest with the universe, help simple equation and a heart open to its artifices. Do this and you will travel to the heart and soul of Aikido; do this, utilize the one simple physics of learning to agree with your opponent, to help him in his pushes and pulls, and you will find the truth of Aikido Power is a simple truth.
