Attention, intention and Aikido

Activates and awakens attention and intention through the practice of Aikido.
They are two very necessary states in the day to day but, you have to activate them to take advantage of them.

Currently there is too much concern in doing things in a hurry, to finish quickly.
This rush to quickly complete the actions, supposes not being able to pay the necessary attention and, therefore, not to apply the necessary intention in the acts.

Attention allows us to be aware of what we are doing and of our environment.
The intention is the way in “how” we perform the actions.
The sum of these two states allows us to be here and now at all times.

Practice Aikido !!

Tension and flexibility in Aikido

The combination of flexibility and tension, provides a correct body adaptation according to the need of the moment.
Following the universal principle of Yin and Yang, the tension and flexibility of the body, will alternate their roles and activity, according to the need of the moment.

Just as at the end of the day (yang), comes the night (yin), after the tension, comes the plasticity, roles that combine infinitely in the figures of Shite and Uke in all their movements and actions.
They are independent and complementary roles.

AI KI (union of energy) > For this union to be possible, we will use the combination of tension, flexibility and, our great ally, breathing.
The strength of individuals goes through a good adaptation to the environment and situations. If there is no flexibility, there is no adaptation. With rigidity, there is no adaptation.

Adaptation to the environment
