Aikido Ghosts at Enighet
Drawings by Gisela Döhler at Enighet, Sweden
Gisela Döhler is a sophisticated artist, who made a number of drawings at our aikido classes, catching wonderfully the movement and flow of aikido. These drawings are exhibited at the Enighet dojo website. She also took some photos, once again focusing on the flow that is so characteristic of aikido, wherefore the unfocused nature of the pictures make us look a bit like ghosts.
