“True Budo has no enemies. True Budo is a function of Love. Budo is not fighting or killing; it is to nourish and bring all things to fruition. Love serves as our guardian angel. Love makes it all happen. Aikido is the actualisation of Love.” – Morihei Ueshiba Osensei, founder of Aikido, from ‘The Heart of Aikido’
