"U aikidou nema takmičenja jer bi to eliminisalo veliki broj ljudi sa treninga. Svrha aikido je da različitim ljudima – ljudima i ženama, mladima i starima, slabima i jakima – omogući da razviju sopstvene potencijale kroz zajedničko vežbanje"

"In Aikido there is no competition because it would eliminate a large number of people from training. The purpose of Aikido is that different people - men and women, young and old, weak and strong - provide that develop their potential through joint exercises"
