  #11 New 12-13-2009 11:18 PM
I have decided that I should probly stop doing Akido after the new year starts. I recon it is just not an area I seem to be suceding in. I trying to accept what I can not do. I thought I was making progress, but affter the test I took , I know it is not so I thought I knew at lest 3 tecques, but I was unable to do even them..
SO .,.. this mean I will also stop posting here...
Thanks for all of your input.
Wishing you all the best of luck in all taht you persue.

hey tara... if you didn't pass your driving test the first time, would have just said 'i'm not going to drive anymore?' give your practice more time. give yourself more time to learn the movement. if you stop now, then you quit. keep practicing for the next test. and the next. and if by then you think you have to stop, at least you can say you tried.

Tara? I googled your name. Look what I found: According to Wikipedia, "Tara, in tibetan Buddhism, .... is known as "the mother of liberation", and represents the virtues of succes in work and achievements". It is extremely common for a martial artist to feel at some point that they are no longer improving. Usually, your instructor has another opinion. Talk to yours. I'm the klutz of my dojo, but I love what I'm learning. Everything else is unimportant. No effort is ever wasted, believe me.

I hope you will talk to your teachers (rather than just not going back anymore). They may have some good advice, or at least might appreciate the feedback. It is as frustrating for teachers to feel like they have not been able to reach a student, as it is for the student. Be careful of thinking about where you "should" be. We all learn in different ways.

Yes traing I would say is valuable, in many ways. I jsut feel like I am failing at it, like so much of life. It's not the teacher, My teachers are good teacher, well for sure one is. I lurned much form the actuly teacher as well as other students. They are all relly good at akido and good about breaking it down. I was stardingto enjoy it, til recently , it seems to changed. I gess it is me and I alrady am defenly not wher I should be.

Hi Tara. Sorry to hear you are frustrated with your training. Aikido is not the right thing for everyone. Before you go... Have you found training valuable? If you leave, will you feel like you've "given up" or "failed"? If so, I would encourage you to stick with it - maybe even try a different teacher. Or if it's really just not your thing, then all the best in finding your true passion. It's been a pleasure getting to know you a little, in any case. All the best! Linda
