Re: Poll: How good are you at aikido?

AikiWeb Poll for the week of July 17, 2005:

How good are you at aikido?
  • I don't do aikido
  • Perfectly good
  • Exceptionally good
  • Very good
  • Good
  • Somewhat good
  • Not very good
  • Not at all good
Here are the current results.
That is a very strange poll

Compared to what. The only objective measures I can imagine are O'sensei or the current doshu. Unfortunately I haven't seen both of them. Well I know my aikido is very poor compared to them.

And some days, I am on the mat and I think: Wow the techniques work all fiine.
And the next day even the easiest techniques do not work at all with my 250 lbs aikido follows with strong Judo experience.

Well, i think, my aikido is pretty good for my grade. But can a 4th kyu ever talk about his aikido being good?

Regards Dirk
