In General A litte update.... Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #53 New 10-12-2010 04:31 PM
Last night class we worked on "31 Jo Kata's" , my sisay had a DVD of a friend whom is 8th Dawn, demestrating them and we all lurned with one another. This was somewhat of new experece for me. I offten a bit lost , espely when it comes to wepons. However, sisay is usuly teacher, he knows what he is doing. Last, night he was a student like all of us. It was more like lests see what we all saw and go for it. I have seen him not knwo before at semnars tought by our group leader, but not relly had had the exprece of being at the same place as everyone else. Alright, I was still behind because they knew the basic movement, but as close as I am going to get to being an equle with them and my teacher. I found it inttresting.
While we were watching hte film sisay shared that at 70 the man we were watching took up line-dacing, to try something new. Sisay siad that it is always good to get out of your element and be a beginer , even when you are more advaced in a fild.
Also, that night we celbrated two people geting there black bellts. Thow sisay siad that black belt ment that you could now the real trining begins. I suppect that he siad this beaue its like saying now tht you can add an subtract , now you can go on to higher concepts. However, some part of me was thinking then what am I doing , plying? I also felt glade becaue I got relize that even he was not an expert and that in some ways I may know as much as him. I not saying he is not greet or much more expreced then I. I siply saying that porhaps I not as far off as think I am. I knw I am slow to lurn , when I do get someting it remains wiht me for life. I strugle with Akido thow , becaue for me I have to be shown something, walked thorw it , attemp on my own with correction, then I uslly havei it and always will. I have a additic momory, but it works kidnda difffrently hten most. However, in akido you are expected to lurn form watching alone, then you get to prrice and get corrected, but mostly your expected to watch and lesson. I neeed it all togheter. However, I grown to relize much about my self while in the safty of the dojo.
Thanks for reding ....thoughts are always welcome

I hear what your sensei said about the real training beginning in the same way you do - that getting to black belt is a new beginning on a higher level. I think of it like becoming a college freshman. Suddenly you are at the bottom... a beginner. It doesn't mean that lower-ranking people can't also be serious and dedicated students.
