Rust in vrede Yamada Sensei ๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธThanks for your commitment ๐Ÿ™.Yamada Sensei is Aikido ๐Ÿฅ‹, maar Aikido is ook Yamada Senseiโœจ๏ธ…het nalatenschap is groot..en de gemeenschap dankbaar.– ๐Ÿ–ค –Dear New York Aikikai Community,It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved teacher, Yoshimitsu Yamada Shihan. Yamada Sensei died peacefully on Sunday, January 15, 2023, under the care of doctors at Mount Sinai Hospital with his family by his side.Private funeral arrangements are being made by Sensei’s family. Please respect their privacy during this difficult time.The New York Aikikai will hold a memorial at a later date that will be open to all who loved and learned from him. We know many of you will want to express your sympathies in some manner. We will make some appropriate suggestions shortly. Yamada Sensei arrived in New York City in 1964 to become chief instructor at the New York Aikikai. He started aikido at age 17 at honbu dojo, Aikikai Headquarters, as an uchi deshi (live-in student) to O Sensei. He not only built the NY Aikikai into a world-class aikido school, but he helped spread the relatively unknown marital art into a thriving community throughout the US, and later on, internationally. A great proponent of individuality and full-hearted training, his classes soared with the harmony and power of a symphony, inspiring all to give their best.The NY Aikikai will remain open as Yamada Sensei wished. He loved nothing more than big classes with high spirits, so please honor him by training as you would if he were leading class. His amazing energy and generosity of spirit will be there on the mat for all of us.Yoshimitsu Yamada February 17, 1938 – January 15, 2023The New York Aikikai Board of Directors#aikido #nyaikikai #newyorkaikikai #yamadasensei #yoshimitsuyamada #martialarts #thisisaikido #learnaikido #dojo #aikidodojo #osensei #ueshiba See MoreSee Less

Show reverance toward the practice of Judo, by keeping your mind in it.๐Ÿ”ต Keep your balance.The center of gravity follows the movement of the body. The center of gravity is the most important element in maintaining stablility. If it is lost, the body is naturally unbalanced. Thus, fix your mind so that your body is always in balance.๐Ÿ”ต Utilize your strength efficiently.Minimize the use of strength with the quickest movement of body. Acknowledge that what is called stillness and motion is nothing but an endlessly repeated process.๐Ÿ”ต Donโ€™t discontinue training.Mastery of Judo cannot be accomplished in a short time. Since skills depend on mental and physical application, constant training is essential.๐Ÿ”ต Keep yourself humble.If you become self-centered, you will build a wall around yourself and lose your freedom. If you can humble yourself in preparation for an event you will surely be better able to judge and understand it. In a match, you will be able to detect the weak point of your opponent and easily put him/her under control.๐‘‡๐‘œ ๐‘š๐‘Ž๐‘ ๐‘ก๐‘’๐‘Ÿ ๐‘Ž๐‘› ๐‘Ž๐‘๐‘ก๐‘ข๐‘Ž๐‘™ ๐‘ก๐‘’๐‘โ„Ž๐‘›๐‘–๐‘ž๐‘ข๐‘’, ๐‘š๐‘’๐‘›๐‘ก๐‘Ž๐‘™ ๐‘๐‘ข๐‘™๐‘ก๐‘ข๐‘Ÿ๐‘’ ๐‘ โ„Ž๐‘œ๐‘ข๐‘™๐‘‘ ๐‘๐‘œ๐‘š๐‘’ ๐‘“๐‘–๐‘Ÿ๐‘ ๐‘ก.๐ด๐‘๐‘ž๐‘ข๐‘–๐‘Ÿ๐‘–๐‘›๐‘” ๐‘Ž ๐‘ก๐‘’๐‘โ„Ž๐‘›๐‘–๐‘ž๐‘ข๐‘’ ๐‘Ÿ๐‘’๐‘ž๐‘ข๐‘–๐‘Ÿ๐‘’๐‘  ๐‘Ž ๐‘๐‘Ž๐‘Ÿ๐‘’๐‘“๐‘ข๐‘™, ๐‘š๐‘œ๐‘‘๐‘’๐‘ ๐‘ก, ๐‘›๐‘œ๐‘›-๐‘š๐‘’๐‘Ž๐‘›, ๐‘“๐‘Ÿ๐‘’๐‘’ ๐‘Ž๐‘›๐‘‘ ๐‘Ž๐‘ก๐‘ก๐‘’๐‘›๐‘ก๐‘–๐‘ฃ๐‘’ ๐‘š๐‘–๐‘›๐‘‘.๐ผ๐‘› ๐‘œ๐‘กโ„Ž๐‘’๐‘Ÿ ๐‘ค๐‘œ๐‘Ÿ๐‘‘๐‘  ๐‘Ž ๐‘๐‘™๐‘Ž๐‘ฆ๐‘’๐‘Ÿ ๐‘ โ„Ž๐‘œ๐‘ข๐‘™๐‘‘ ๐‘‘๐‘œ โ„Ž๐‘–๐‘  ๐‘ข๐‘ก๐‘š๐‘œ๐‘ ๐‘ก ๐‘Ž๐‘›๐‘‘ ๐‘›๐‘œ๐‘กโ„Ž๐‘–๐‘›๐‘” ๐‘™๐‘’๐‘ ๐‘ .…..๐พ๐‘ฆ๐‘ข๐‘ง๐‘œ ๐‘€๐‘–๐‘“๐‘ข๐‘›๐‘’.Picture: Mifune (left) in training with Kanล See MoreSee Less
