must first be passed

Aikido is not an art to fight with or to defeat an enemy.
It is a Way in which to harmonise all people into one family.
The essence of Aikido is to put oneself in tune with the
functioning of the universe, to become one with the universe.
Those who have grasped the inner meaning of Aikido
possess the universe within themselves.
O'Sensei
