A Quote by unknown on aikido and martial arts

When practicing techniques with a partner, nage and uke must each give 100% effort. It is not 50% nage and 50% uke. So, I tend to think about this issue the same way. It is up to each individual to give 100% to both sides of their training, martial and spiritual. It is not 50% martial and 50% spiritual. One aspect of the art does not suffer at the hands of the other. They should both be given full measure. This idea also reminds me of something that the 2nd Doshu said, "O-Sensei was both more martial and more spiritual than people realize."

A Quote by Bruce Lee on martial arts and awareness

Like everyone else, you want to learn the way to win, but never to accept the way to lose - to accept defeat. To learn to die is to be liberated from it. So when tomorrow comes you must free your ambitious mind and learn the art of dying!

A Quote by Timothy H. Warneka on wendy palmer, aikido, martial arts, leadership, and integral leadership


"Leadership is at once obvious and mysterious. Like Aikido, leadership

is a mind-body-spirit discipline calling us to create conditions that allow

others to contribute effectively and whole-heartedly. From childhood to

old age, leadership is a function that touches all of our lives, offering endless

opportunities to refine our capacity to lead and be led."

- from the Foreword by Wendy Palmer
