"Mogu reći da u Aikidou, apsolutno nije primereno takmičiti se, i za to sam vrlo ponosan što se bavim Aikidom, jer bi trebalo postojati nešto što nema takmičarski aspekt u ovom modernom svetu"
  Shihan Yoshimitshu Yamada 8 Dan



"I can say that in Aikido, it’s absolutely not appropriate to employ competition, and for that I’m very proud to be an Aikido practitioner, because there should be something that has no competitive aspect in this modern world"
  Shihan Yoshimitshu Yamada 8 Dan
