Kisshomaru-Ueshiba-1992

“Kisshomaru Ueshiba’s stamp on modern aikido,” by Stanley Pranin

aikido

Even the most powerful human being has a limited sphere of strength. Draw him outside of that sphere and into your own, and his strength will dissipate.

From one of the best books about Aikido "Aikido and the Dynamic Sphere: An Illustrated Introduction" by Adele Westbrook and Oscar Ratti

Opponents confront us continually, but actually there is no opponent there. Enter deeply into an attack and neutralize it as you draw that misdirected force into your own sphere.

A little bit about this phrase in "Three Doka and the Aiki O-Kami", on the Aikido Sangenkai​ blog:  http://www.aikidosangenkai.org/blog/three-doka-aiki-o-kami/
