Road to 1st Kyu – Week 1 Day 1 – one more thing

Originally uploaded by markdeso

A coworker of mine is an exceptional classical guitar player. I asked him one day how he goes about learning new things. He tells me that before he starts to practice the piece he usually listens to a couple of pieces of the composers work, and tries to learn something about the author himself.

As Aikido is an art centered around O’ Sensei, I think this time of preparation gives me a good opportunity to learn more about him. To this, I’m grabbing the book “A Life in Aikido” by Kisshomaru Ueshiba off the shelf. I bought the book a while ago but never started and will start reading today.
