Re: Poll: How physically tired are you usually after one hour of aikido training?

I said "very tired", but it depends on the class. Some classes make me extremely tired and some I really don't feel tired at all. Depends on the techniques practiced, the ukemi taken, and the partners I worked with.

If I end up with a one-on-one class with Sensei, I can barely move afterwards. Advanced/freestyle class comes in a close second. If it's a class where I mostly work with beginners, I'm not tired at all. Most classes are somewhere in between, but now that it's a sauna in the dojo.........I end up pretty freakin tired after every class!
