Nick Regnier: Aspire Aikido
The Budo Classics #2
“Sometimes I wish I had someone to guide me in choosing which Aikido school to learn from, how to learn the art properly, practice and develop strong Aikido techniques. This book simply tries to be that good guide for you, showing you a different way to think about the Art and practice better Aikido, with a solid focus on finding what I would call strong Aikido.”
Nick’s journey in learning Aikido made him realise that “if you don’t train your mind by practicing diligently,
you could be wasting a lot of time”. Aikido is more of an “exercise for the mind” than a set of techniques performed with the physical body. Aikido students learn to use mind, body and spirit together to perform techniques. When all three are used, one’s Aikido is infused with strong spirit and feelings, making Aikido techniques come alive.
This book is a collection of Nick’s writings to date. Here he shares his intimate thoughts, offering with candid honesty his explanation of what he believes is behind Aikido, its system, technical methods and purposes. His reflections are influenced primarily by his unique path in Aikido – having practiced in the Aikikai, Yoshinkan and Takemusu Iwama styles – and by his work experience in the security industry. His life experience was also very special, as Nick faced it with a profound hearing disability. Aikido has enormously built his self-confidence and made him ready to face whatever lies ahead.
Nick Regnier started his studies in Aikido in 1988. He follows Iwama Aikido since 1995 and teaches
Iwama Aikido at the Aspire Aikido London Dojo.
