Aikido does not belong to anybody, the founder wanted it universal and not exclusively Japanese

Aikido is by no means a sport but can not deviate from budo

Aikido is not related to any religion, neither is Shinto like Buddhism or Omotokyo, and it can not, under any circumstances, be a religion

In aikido, we do not defend ourselves, we do not take care, we do not look at the attack; we do not dominate, do not submit and we do not compromise

The only strategy is that the aggressor's heart changes when he touches us "aite no kokoro kawaru ". For that, one must give before receiving

Aikidoka must thank the attack and perform the gesture that is good for everything.
