In a world of instant gratification, I wonder if I can speed up the progress.
On the plus side, we, as adults with a lot more time uner our belts, have a lot more complimentary experiences from which to draw. I played soccer for 11 years before I started Aikido, which I imagine helped when i was trying to focus on foot-work. In the same regard, we have more time from which we can aquire and make stick many bad habits we have to subsequently "unlearn", so i guess it can work both ways.
