    The latest "It Had to Be Felt" essay is now available for your reading pleasure, this time on Akimoto HIdehiro of the Iwama Ibaraki Dojo, written by Carl Thompson. From the essay: “Akimoto sensei once stated that when training under O-sensei, he did not get involved in the fighting culture that certain other teachers were notorious for. However, he followed this up with a very convincing statement that he knew what to do in a fight, and that the aikido we did in the dojo was a form of budo, which must be effective.”

    The latest "It Had to Be Felt" essay is now available for your reading pleasure, this time on Maruyama Koretoshi of Aikido Yuishinkai. This essay was written by Peter Kelley. From the essay: "The essence of what he does and teaches is that, through mind, that humans can make what is impossible possible. He believes that the message of the founder was that through aikido, we can ‘self-purify,' and become better human beings. There are many things that I have come to admire about Maruyama sensei, but none more so than his constant need to train himself, constantly developing and elaborating both the way he does technique and the way he looks at aikido as a whole.
