Welcome to the first episode of An Aiki Minute . . . (or so).
The plan is for each episode to be between 1 and 3 minutes. We'll be covering all manner of subjects related to aikido, whether they be training, philosophy, controversial stuff, and just plain fun ideas.
My plan is to post several times per week.
This podcast is inspired Brooks Jensen, who is a photographer/publisher. Starting in March, 2019, Brooks began a podcast he entitles Just a Thought. He posts them most every day. If you are interested in seeing Brooks' photography and checking out his publications, you can find him at LensWork.com. I highly recommend it.
