On Wednesday night, Yulia made sure to bring up my statistic to 100%. I could not perform a single technique on her. It is amazing and at the same time extremely interesting to discover and experience different people with different levels of strength.
The training on Wednesday night was intense and the techniques hard to perform. I've always felt like Aikido is a cycle, some days I can perform the techniques without a single problem, then there are the days I can't, I'm using too much strength and no technique. I have notice though, that although the cycle never goes away, the interval gets smaller and my mistakes go unnoticed and unfelt by uke.
It has nothing to do with anything on the outside of me, and everything to do with what is in me, what is going on in my mind, in my heart, and I wonder how to even begin to work on that.
