Aikido Video



     Watch this cool video of a demonstration in the martial art of Aikido. One of the concepts you'll see applied in this video is the redirection of an attacker's force. As I mentioned a few posts ago, this concept can also be applied psychologically as a strategy of life...against someone's anger and ill will...against forms of stress...against a negativity that distorts the good things life has to offer and drags you down as a human being!

    1. Hi Brittany,

      I agree! The mind can redirect the psychological harm others can do in a similar manner. That's another reason the martial arts are so fascinating - for the "emotional content" as Bruce Lee said near the start of Enter the Dragon.
