Re: Beginners with delusions of grandeur...
I am a beginner in aikido but with MA background. I've only been to 3 classes so far and it's great. It's similar to what I've learnt in the past (taijutsu) so I do understand the techniques and i'm not too bad as an uke given pointers here and there. I know I have a lot of getting use to( that's why I went on 3 consecutive days) but I am able to keep up with the class.
I've seen mistakes done by my seniors and although I've never corrected them, I wonder if I should. I'm afraid they'd feel humiliated. They are probably 5th or 6th kyu(it starts at 6 here) and I don't even have my gi yet. So is it proper to correct your seniors?
