Two Hundred and Forty-four
 
'When walking in the river, if you think "cold," it feels much colder. If you think "hot" it is still very cold! So, eventually, I found out the best way to walk in the river. Don't think "cold." Don't think "hot." Just walk. I understand this idea from this experience, not from words.' (emphasis added) - Shuji Maruyama Sensei
With much thanks to Sensei for teaching me this early on; I understand Aikido from experiencing it. Whether practicing Ki exercises, waza or weapons, understanding comes from the experience of doing. I train and I find what works and what doesn't. I leave behind what doesn't work and make what does work part of me. While training I don't think "right", I don't think "wrong". I just train and experience how I feel.
