Here at the frontier, the leaves fall like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians, and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are still two cups at my table.

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.

Yoshinkan Aikido 1983

When the Doshinkan Aikido Dojo was dedicated in 1983 by Utada Sensei, Kushida Sensei, as the ranking Yoshinkan teacher in the US, took part in the ceremony and performed a demonstration. 

Here are two videos of the demonstrations that day. The first is around 17 minutes long and the other is around 15 minutes.

Enjoy. This is how I remember Kushida Sensei.
