My wife will be giving birth to our new son in April and I'm already feeling the early pangs of dojo separation. Dunno how long I'll be gone this time but I'm in an absorb-as-much-as-you-can mode right now.

Wouldn't it be nice if you could rent an uke for those long absences? You know, head into the local Uke's-R-Us and select from a wide range of sizes and weights to lease out for however long you needed them.
They would be fully-animatronic of course (no consumption expenses there) and could be neatly folded for easy storage when done training.
But I suppose there would be insurance issues if the dog got ahold of one or if it got stolen...
Hmmm, I wonder how much they would go for?

Alas, I should just enjoy the remaining classes.

The power of aikido is amazing and thankfully injuries have been a rare occurance in our dojo (knock on wood).
Long-term knee injuries, however, is something that I've been following on the boards here and on the web.

Trying to be more gentle on the knee while on the mat affects my techniques, my center. The mat we practice on really grips the foot when pivoting so there's alot more effort than on other surfaces. Adjusting myself to what might happen in the long-term, I feel, is a bad habit in the making, especially with something as important as tenkan.
But on the other hand, I've been having aches and pains in my knees.
It's never during or right after class but later in the night and lingers into the following days. I've only been in Aikido a short time but to already be putting stress on my knees?

I really need to watch that torque in my tenkan...or perhaps just shutup and practice. lol

It'll be good to keep a record of my training in Aikido, to see my progress and missteps.

So much has been learned since the journey into Aikido began - so much in just under three years... but still, it's only a drop of water in the proverbial well.
Watching Sensei and the more senior students, I ache for that amount of control and fluidity, but I understand that the foundations are still being laid. There is a long way to go.
I aim to be in this art for life, God-willing. The well runs mighty deep.
