  #12 New 12-15-2009 10:17 PM
I posted previouly that I was thinking about leving Akido and here. Well ,upon further thought and talking to some of my teachers or people in gernarl... I thinking that I am actuly lurning more then I am not. I still think that I not whre I "should" be. I know others are catching on faster then I am. However, I am lurnign I am not there for them , I there for me! I supose some part of me wants aproval, but altimently I need to hold myself to my own goles. I forgoton this, as you whom flow my post knwo I have verious lurnign difrences nd Asburgers. I never caought on fast to anythign, when I do get it thow , I NEVER forget it even if I try really heard to. So , long and short of it is I think that Aikido has alot to offer me, besides I jsut like the dojo, most of the time. I mean there are a few whom seem to pick on me, but most seem to at lest while in the dojo nurtral or nice. I like that and I lurn alot even if it is not as fast as I am suposed to, pluse I need the exercise. Ty to all of you for your input and for advice.

On a difrent note, I have question. However, frist I will tell you the senrio. It goes like this a while back I went to a semnar when I had barily stared to train. It truned out to be mostly black and brwon belts. I worked with my sisay alot!!!! or rather he worked with me. I belive this to be because he was tryign to protect me, or becaue he was tryed, thow I more thinking the frist. He , goes to the semnoars to price his Akido. I was told then an intresting bit of information , by a higher belt, that I should feel hourned to have someone so good working with me so much. At the time I did not fullly get what he was saying after all he was brown belt and to me that was preddy high. I know the teacher whom I study under is a 4th dawn. However, most of the people there were black belt of some type. Some of the others worked with me as well, what was specal about this one? I still not sure I understand, don't get me wrong I think he is greet and he seems to be a greet man as well. I am hourned to get to trin under him. I jsut don't knwo why this student felt the need to tell me this.

This was brought up in my mind agin becvaue , the other night I did not have a boken and sisay alowed me to use his. This same student siad that this was "big" deal and that I should feel hourned, and make sure you thank him. I agin am left in slit confution for a cupple of resons. while I understand that a wepon is suposed to be kinda liek a persons sole, I have used one of the higher raking students ones, as well as the persons whom siad this. I am also awhere that sisay is supoed to be something respected, and I do. What I fail to see is why it was such a big deal, esply for sisay did not seem to act like it was. Infact he was told by a student that someone had gone to get one for from the shed where they store the onese that belong to the dojo. He siad its ok , she can use mine.

I supose my question is am I missing something , if so what is it and how am I suposed to resomond in cermstances liek this?
belsed be .

I'm so glad you're going to keep at it. :-) If Aikido provides a laboratory for us to work on things from other areas of life, then this is a great opportunity for you to work on getting through that uncomfortable period of learning when things are awkward and frustrating. It sounds like your sensei is willing to be as committed to you as you are to yourself. I'm sure he sees that you are working hard, and is happy to help you.
