In General Last night's Training Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Last nights training went very well, I observed a few things last night that I am starting to understand about taking someone's mind then balance also I have observed people not really going though the technique Properly they just seem to go though the motions and I thought well it is so easy to get into that trap even my sensei said the same thing last night, I have decided not to be one of those people so when I do a technique I snap it on it gives a true representation of the technique, I am guessing people do not want to hurt anyone which is noble but what if you have to do this in real life and it does not work, because you have not trained properly you might get hurt or worse, in this case people would blame their sensei or Aikido its self but the true blame must lie at the feet of the student the sensei can only show you and point out these errors but its down to the student to implement them.

My Grading training is going well I am starting to feel the tension on the other person, I am not sure if this is because I am getting softer or I am more relaxed doing the technique but I can really feel a difference once I understand this more I will try capture that feeling by writing it down .

When my sensei now shows us things everything slows down for me it almost like I am looking at everything in slow motion I wonder if anyone else has this kind of feeling its like I am living just in that moment it's a pretty awesome feeling

Most of you would of come to your own conclusion's on this some time ago so here I go .
I was at work yesterday and I found a quote I really liked it goes "Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the men of old; seek what they sought."
Now I have been thinking of this since yesterday and with this Quote I came to my very minor discovery, first off what does path of least resistance really mean
"The path of least resistance describes the physical or metaphorical pathway that provides the least resistance to forward motion by a given object or entity, among a set of alternative paths"
Now when you start off in aikido you see the higher grades fly though the air landing with perfect grace and timing (well some of the time anyway )
And you think to yourself I never be able to do that then you see these same grades apply technique and that's all you see has a beginner all you really see is the attack, and then the technique and the guy sucking up the matt.
Now most people ask why we do things like Tai No Henko Kokyu Ho etc its seems pointless and has a beginner you have faith in your teacher and you do what he says and how he says at times blindly the teacher will say things like blend with the other person or try not to get a blockage and try to flow, but if you are not show ...More Read More
