The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Tomiki Aikido Video

Happy Cinco de Mayo. How better to celebrate this holiday than to post a video of one of the giants of the aikido work, Kenji Tomiki.

Tomiki Sensei was not only one of the luminaries of aikido, he was one of the highest ranking judoka as well. His influence has been felt strongly by both martial arts.

I love the vintage videos. I appreciate what the old guys did more and more.
