“Aikido is not what is translated by movements, but what is translated well before the birth of the form, because Aikido is part of the psychic world of emptiness… There is no form or style in Aikido, the movement is that of nature, whose secret is deep and infinite.”Senseï Morihei Ueshiba.

In 2012, Satchie Noro resumed his father Masamichi Noro’s cargo voyage delegated in 1961 by his master Morihei Ueshiba for the development of Aikido in Europe and Africa. A crossing from Marseille to Ominato, the native village. The film is the one of these 42 days at sea, of improvisations danced woven on the cargo ship. A metamorphosis dance filmed by herself.
