The Dojo

Home

 

The dojo is the shrine for Aikido and the sanctuary for the Aikidoka, their cleanliness and quiet should prevail in it.

The ultimate aim of Aikido training is to acquire an attitude of balanced poise both physically and mentally to assimilate this principal into life.

The practice should therefore be constant of as well as on the mat.

In acquiring this mental and physical discipline one should acquire neither of the opposite states of tension or complete uncontrolled relaxation.

Be ever mindful to learn, for the wise man can learn from the fool more than the fool can learn from the wise.

Skill grows from practice.

But quality depends on one’s ability in making use of the rapidly changing circumstances.

Therefore practice should be varied and constantly changing.

Avoid stagnant stalemate.

Whether the contest is won or lost or ones efforts result in success or failure.

All stand equal in the course of training.

What matters most is the state of mind, use initiative, and be progressive and constructive.
