In 1925, Morihei Uyeshiba was 42 years old. He had many visitors, for everybody knew he was a phenomenal martial artist. One day a naval officer came to call, and their discussion became an argument.
The naval officer held that no one could dodge a sword, and O Sensei held that it was possible. The two squared off, argument became reality, and O Sensei proved that it was possible. After the match, Morihei stepped to a well and doused his head with a bucket of water, and had a moment of profound realization that was to shape the martial arts forever.
The essence of this realization was that men are brothers in spirit, and should all get along. Undoubtedly, other martial artists over the ages have experienced similar realizations, but Uyeshiba’s realization was crucial in history, and unique to the founding of a specific method. Aikido is a method which results in people realizing that they are brothers in the spirit.
The essence of this method is that one should duplicate the motion of an attacker, and join to it. The reality is that if you do this in the physical, the mind starts to go along with it, and you achieve a Uyeshiba Moment of Enlightenment. This has become a proven method, with Aikido spreading across the world and providing moments and levels of spiritual peace and harmony.
This universe is filled with objects that fly through space. Unfortunately, most people, and most arts, collide. Thus, Aikido allowed a method of no collision, but of control of trajectory to the benefit of all.
Ultimately, I realized that this method can be done more efficiently, logically, and I created Matrix Aikido towards that end. The idea behind Matrix Aikido is not a reduction of the analysis of the flow of objects, or bodies, in the universe, it is a concentration of the method through scientific intent.
In classical Aikido it takes years, decades, to achieve sufficient flow in one’s thought to enable one to have a Uyeshiba moment. This is because it takes time to learn the stylized movements of Aikido. To negate this I began teaching my method from concepts, and the result is that the student doesn’t memorize techniques, but rather creates them as he goes along.
The martial arts are taught through methods that are arrangements of random strings of data. Matrixing puts aside those stylistic arrangements in favor of scientific rendering. There is no disservice to O Sensei in a method that enables one to achieve what he achieved at a faster rate, there is only the call to teachers of the art to augment their teaching methods with my discoveries.
