One does not need buildings, money, power, or status to practice the Art of Peace.
Heaven is right where you are standing, and that is the place to train. -Ueshiba
Behaviors of a self centered nature were discussed at the onset. Our expectation was that in running Class V water, group think and constant vigilance in regard to being mindful of others is the best skill in insuring safe behaviors. Anywhere, for anything.
I am very grateful for the humility and selflessness of my teammates and new friends who had the self awareness and courage to participate in the first training ORT has offered to the public. We all have issues, yet through training, we overcome adversity by attempting to better ourselves and those around us. Sharing, connecting. Heaven is right where you are standing, and that is the place to train. Merry Christmas!
