A Letter from Bruce Bookman Sensei February 2011

Passion is the most important quality to have when we want to succeed at anything.
It is what gets us to go the extra mile, search a little deeper, find the energy
when we think that none is left – in short, it’s what gets us to do the extraordinary.
I see so many children come through our doors at Tenzan. Yes, I help them to learn
aikido but the bigger lesson that I hope to impart is that they need to get in touch
with their passion. When we are passionate, what happens? We watch a movement not
because someone will be testing us, but because we would like the feeling that comes
with mastery. That is the sense of integration, that we are empowering ourselves
and that we have another portal for our artistic expression. On some level the
movement or the art form touches us so much that we want to become a part of it.
When we get into that mind set, our effort does not seem like effort and the time
goes by in a flash.

When I used to take private group lessons with Chiba Sensei at Aikido World Headquarters
in Tokyo, often, our lessons would go on for over 2 hours. It was a very vigorous
and intense practice. Within the first 30 minutes, my uniform would be sopping wet.
The lessons were so fascinating that 2 hours would go by like 15 minutes. When we
ended, it always seemed like we’d just begun. I got so engaged in the lesson that
I forgot how hard I was training. Every new skill that I could grasp brought with
it an untapped reserve of energy to learn the next thing. Granted, some of what
seemed like endless energy had to do with me being 19 years old at the time. Nevertheless,
there is much to be said for being in the right frame of mind.

We can take the enthusiasm that we have for our practice, and put it into other
areas of our lives. Enthusiasm comes from the Greek words en, “within,” and theos,
which means “spirit.” In other words when you are enthusiastic, you’re tapping into
the spirit within – passion! My goal at Tenzan Aikido is to support you in putting
enthusiastic, vibrant energy into your aikido and to bring passion into your daily
life.

Warm Regards!

Director, Tenzan Aikido
