One of my students was a boxer.

I was teaching taisabaki and told him to punch. My taisabaki was too soon. I moved, he shifted and I had tears in my eyes.

Most good Aikidoists I know - have had experience in other martial arts.

The biggest problem is a new student who has limited knowledge of the martail art he did before. Karate for a year, maybe once a week, big problem. etc
