"U svetu kakvom danas živimo, sa tako jakim akcentom na posedovanju materijalnih stvari, zaista je retko naići na ljude koji mogu da stave ruku na srce i kažu da imaju pravog prijatelja. Način na koji se ja trudim da vežbam i podučavam aikido dozvolio mi je da to kažem mnogo puta"
  Shihan William Smith 6 Dan (1929-2006)



"In the world of what today we live, with such a strong emphasis on the possession of material things, it is really rare to find people who can put hand on heart and say that they have real friends. The way I try to practice and teach Aikido allow me to say that many times"
  Shihan William Smith 6 Dan (1929-2006)
