    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Aikido: Ueshiba still active from the grave!

    Yeah fellas,

    this is one of the most retarded things ever:

    A bunch of Austrians created a new style of Aikido called Aikiom Aikido.
    The special thing about it is, that it is called the improved version of Aikido, directly by the founder, M. Ueshiba ... who is dead for ages.
    And no, they dont claim to have found the secret scrolls of the real Aikido or the long lost master-student of the founder ... they say, the received transcendal messages from Ueshiba by "channeling" [some para-psycho hocus pocus]. :icon_redf :bs:

    On their hp is a quote from Ueshiba from July 2006 :new_silly [http://www.ki-shin-tai.com/ueberaikiomaikido/index.html - it is all in German]

    Hopefully this becomes a new trend in bs-ma, so we can have many more improved styles, directly by the dead founder.

    Could someone translate the "founder's" celestial message?

    Not too profound, if you ask me...

    Ok, will give a rough translation:

    "Verbinde Dich mit Deinem Herzen und dem göttlichen Ki, kontrolliere weder Deine Gedanken noch deine Techniken, sondern lasse das Ki fliessen und das wahre Aikido wird zum Vorschein kommen."
    (übermittelt von Meister Morihei Ueshiba am 15.Juli 2006)
    means something like:

    Unite yourself with your heart and your divine ki, neither control your thoughts nor your techniques, just let the ki flow and the true Aikido will reveal

    Seems to me like a potpourri of the Founder's thoughts, with the priceless addition of "...control neither your techniques nor your mind...". They seem to insist a lot on that.

    2pac managed it so I don't see why Ueshiba should be any different.

    Eine weitere essentielle Notwendigkeit ist die Bereitschaft, altes Wissen/alte Techniken vergessen zu können/wollen.

    "another essential necessity is the readiness to want to forget (or to be able to forget) old knowledge and old techniques"

    lol.

    yup, they're cutting edge, those aikido guys.
