The Actual Truth Of The Universe And O Sensei Aikido

By Guest

Morihei Uyeshiba, O Sensei of Aikido fame, is the person who experienced enlightenment. It is he who organized and arranged his martial art, thus, the aikido Ueshiba created is the true Aikido. Well, sort of.

This question, concerning the nature of the Real Aikido, is the question that confuses students of Japanese Aikido, budo aikido, and all the various offshoots. There are so many different schools, you see, and they can’t all be the truth, right? And this question, of there being many variations and interpretations, does itself question the validity of the Aikido of schools everywhere, for if the founder was right, then how could there be interpretation?

The question, of course, is easily resolved if one considers the real truth of the universe. Morihei Uyeshiba, you see, experienced the truth of the universe from his sole viewpoint, and he did an amazing job of presenting that singular truth with his art. But if one considers the truth of the universe as a pure piece of information one can approach the art from a personal viewpoint of enlightenment, and not just from one man’s experience of enlightenment.

Just to reassure you, I mean no disrespect to the founder of Aikido, indeed, I hold him in the highest regard, and I believe he would want me to question, to consider, and not just robot the moves. He was not one to robot the martial arts, after all, he was a creator of genius magnitude. I think he would want practitioners to emulate him on that level, as well as the level of endless and dedicated practice.

That all said, the truth of the universe, as shown by the yin yang symbol, and defined Neutronically, is: for something to be true the opposite must also be true. We can take this statement apart endlessly in philosophical lights. The art being one of doingness and action, however, we must consider the truth of the universe as it applies to techniques, from the aikido basics onward.

When an attacker attacks, the defender must perceive the attack. To perceive the attack not as just an incoming line, though that is necessary, but as a completed technique in his own mind. Thus, the defender must see the entire picture of the attack, must have the entire sequence of pictures in his mind.

Once the picture is complete, and at the same time as execution, the defender must mirror the attack. Right to right or right to left, the mirror of action will fit the attack as a tailored glove will fit a hand, and the defensive attack will envelope the actuallity of the attack. If this is accomplished, then you are doing the Morihei Uyeshiba Aikido as perceived in his moment of enlightenment.

There is perfection in this visualization and realization, you see. Perfection of action, and of mind, and of art. The good news is that this procure can be applied to the art of Saito Aikido, Aikido Aikikai, or any other interpretation of the founder’s vision in existence, the founder’s viewpoint was that close to perfection.

The best DVD for exploring the concept presented in this article is Matrix Aikido, which is available at Monster Martial Arts. 5
