Pop Aikido

There is a plethora of martial arts related movies out there. the latest being The Karate Kid, the next would be Tekken.

These movies have themes and adages in them that makes a lot of martial arts sense, as well as in daily life.

what can you glean from the movies you’ve watched? who said what that make sense? and how can it add wisdom to your Aikido practise and your daily life?

One Response to Pop Aikido

  1. Any martial art movie out there can and do have anecdotes, themes, messages (however you call them) in them. The question is not their validity or how correct they are, it’s how you – as the audience – interprets them.

    Making movies, like martial arts, eventually are arts themselves – expressions of the self. Art imitates life as I’ve heard of it. And sure, I’ve related to a few messages from movies, although my Sensei’s tend to do a good job of connecting Aikido’s teachings into the “real world”.
