having a true knowledge of budo are relaxed in bearing; they give the
impression of being soft and gentle. Those with confidence in budo never
swagger or brag, and their demeanor is always pleasant and joyful.
Outwardly they manifest gentleness; inwardly there is great strength. In
daily life, they are unpretentious and modest, and their actions are
natural, never forced. They show themselves as they are, living life
naturally and spontaneously. This is the picture of the true student of
the martial arts."
Fr. "The Spirit of Aikido"
