Confidence(Sp) is one of the important keys in Aikido in my opinion. For example
we had a older lady, white belt, that was very nervous and was unsure of her moves. She would end up trying to do something and do it wrong. However, we had a fellow that transfered from Judo, a black belt, and was very confident compaired to the rest of us and picked up very quickly.
I am also very nervous about my movements, and I do not like to ask questions, I'm not sure why. So, I end up gathering movements from observation. However, I am learning to ask questions when I am confused.

Kelly Allen Says:
The traditional way to teach Aikido is for the student to interpret as best he can the throw demonstrated by the sensei. Sensei will observe and adjust any tehnique in your throw. Again you must try and emulate as best you can the throw keeping senseis adjustments in mind. If your training with a partner that seems to be doing the throw better than you ask him for assistance. As a last resort ask sensei how to make it right. I have found this helps develope my visual cognitive skills. (ie,The more I try to visually interperet senseis demo the better I get at it). I think part of it has to do with the throws themselves are made up of a combination of subtechniques that tend to be interchangable, and combine with other subtechniques to make other throws. Hope this made sense, and is helpful in some way. Kelly
