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 .
