Fight Less Harmonize More
Tonight's theme at Aikido was to let the movements flow and the example Sensei used was the gymnasts who twirl the long ribbons circling around as they perform. We were to emphasize the flowing nature of Aikido and the ribbon gymnasts can't make square movements. Rather it is either a flow or nothing.
But the memorable quote came when he was trying to get us to stop fighting when uke made the attack. So he came out with “Fight Less Harmonize More”.
