The Dojo features two large hand drawn scrolls. The scrolls are canvas made from the mat of one of our previous locations. The calligraphy is by Hiroshi Ikeda, Shihan.
The Kanji represent the principles of Aikido [trans. Akira Tohei, Shihan]:
- “Masakatsu” (Righteous victory, proper attitude);
- “Agatsu” (Victory over self);
- “Katsu Hayabi” (Victory over speed or light, doing things quickly)
