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.

The Aikido of Hiroshi Tada

Hiroshi Tada is a 9th Dan in Aikido. He is also 83 years old and still active in teaching aikido.

Below is a recent video of him. Ok, the ukes are a little on the compliant side, but look at the way the man moves! He's 83. I hope to be able to move like that when I'm 83.

I'm 29 and I barely move that well!

There's a very extensive eight part interview with Hiroshi Tada available here:
