World Aikido Aikikai India

“People who practice Aikido, should be recognized as the best artists in the world. It is easy to create something good, with good materials, however, we perform a Martial Art that is designed to destroy and kill people, which is something people dislike / reject.
With these poor materials, we cultivate a society of friendship and build peaceful minds, that people desire.
Every Aikido technique has that mind, that heart.”
– S. Nishio
