Its a lot like dancing…an aikido journey

i recently finished reading this short but beautifully written book called ‘Its a lot like dancing…an aikido journey’ by the late Terry Dobson sensei. i don’t know him until i read this book, there’s a lot in it which i can relate to. its’ succinctness, and the beautifully taken photographs.

Terry sensei explains a lot of the experiences i blog about, which is a testament that my experiences in Aikido is very much universal. which also means much of it written is a reinvention of the wheel.

Not a very exciting and revolutionary prospect isn’t it?

  1. I wouldn’t say that the experiences of all Aikidoists are alike. I’d say that our different experiences, combined with the teachings that we receive are what makes the Aikido journey.


    • Well, my friend, having reading what Terry sensei has to say, I’m glad that my experience is consistent. I totally agree that no one single experiences are alike. i can do irimi nage twice and the latter will not bear identical similarities to the former.
