Re: Aikido and Safety

Amazingly enough, the more people we have on the mat, the more space we are able to create for ourselves. Our mat fills the dojo, roughly 20x30-very small. Last week we had thirteen people training, and no collisions. Saturday we had five, and people were smashing into each other...I am always surprised when I can put uke where I intend to put them!
