Eli Lerman's Blog

Welcome to my blog

 Since I started training Aikido, in 1989, I'm intrigued by the connection between Aikido and everyday life.
I see Aikido as a lab in which we investigate our reactions, habits and the we manage ourselves in the world. Thus, the ability to take the insights from the lab of the dojo into our life seems to me natural and necessary. In the blog I write about thoughts, insights and questions related to aikido and it's affiliation to the 'big' life. I hope that the blog with thrive and continue to be a space for discussions and deepening in Aikido and in its relation to our lives. Your comments add a lot, and frequently, through a certain comment I learn about a subject from a new perspective. With a hope to continued fruitful and educational discussions and joyful walking in the path of Aikido.
