Re: Poll: How aesthetically pleasing is your instructor's aikido?
I only try to learn from those sensei that have aesthetically extremely pleasing aikido. That is to say: Aikido that works! If I wanted to learn a dance, I'll be doing ballet -- no disrespect intended, it's very hard to be good at ballet!
Then again, for me the best teacher is the one that makes me go "WOW, when I grow up, I want to be just like him/her...."
/me still has not grown up.
//way more fun that wayt.
