From Mary Heiny Sensei

“The lesson of Aikido is that violence is self-destructive. We help our partner learn this without actually destroying them.”

(Mary Heiny Sensei is strongly connected with Vermont Aikido, and taught a seminar here in May of this year. We will be posting photographs and related material from the seminar shortly.)
