Aikido has built a reputation around lying to people and making them think this “art” is all about peace, love and butterflys.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Aikido has a direct connection to ninjitsu and other warrior arts and to this very day, the inner sanctum of the Aikido world are practicing traditional energy death techniques such as “the Death touch” and “Mental implosion energy correlation” or the “MIEC”.
The following is the “What is Aikido” explanation found on the Aikikai foundation website. Aikikai is considered by most to be the premier Aikido group in the world. I beg to differ….
A pure budo comes with the unification of technique, body and heart. The budo, which will manifest itself, does not depend upon the technique, but rather upon the heart of the practitioner.
The aim of Aikido is a kindness of heart expressed through this spirit of budo.
Here are some thoughts on the spirit of Aikido.
Completely false. The essence of true budo, is the essence of bujutsu, the absolute commitment to the warriors ethos.
Aiki is love.
No. Aiki is Energy communing with Universe.
The goal of Aikido training is not perfection of a step or skill, but rather improving one’s character according to the rules of nature.
A strong character will not save you when a rival Ninja clan or a government assassin come to snatch the life from you. No, the goal of Aikido, like Ninjitsu or Telekinesis is the ability to completely shatter your enemies and then escape unharmed and ready for further action.
Aikido movement maintains this firm and stable center with an emphasis on spherical rotation characterized by flowing, circular, dance-like motions. These pivoting, entering and circling motions are used to control and overcome the opponent. The principle of spherical rotation makes it possible to defend one self from an opponent of superior size, strength, and experience.
Again, misguided and false.
A circular rotation and pivotal movements are used not for “dancing” because why in the name of the great Shidoshi would you want to dance with a cold-blooded Israel hit man as he tries to end your life? No, circular motions are employed because these movements mimic the orbits and paths of the stars and planets thus allowing the in tuned warrior to summon more easily the abundant energy floating all around us in the cosmos. Once this energy is summoned, collected and molded, then the Zionist hit man could be eliminated with nothing more than a thought and a nod of the head.
At the heart of Aikido is the Eastern concept of Ki –the universal creative principle. Aikido seeks to unite this universal Ki with the Ki (life force or breath) found within each person. Literally, Aikido translates as “the way of harmony with Ki”
The true energy warrior, or “Ki-Bushi” know that it is less harmony and more mastery that will elevate one to the 7th plane and allow the viewing of the great temple of Quimises. Without Mastery….there is only oblivion.
