Re: Poll: Are you ever bored during aikido class?
yep, ki tests have bored the absolute bits off me at times (no, not the rowing exercise again...). Is it the aikido's fault, probably not, is it my fault, definitely yes -so I've not yet become an aikido saint...
I'm sorry but I have to question the "never bored" answers, either
a) you're a master at redirecting your focus and attention (and have always been able to, even since you were a baby gi in the dojo)
b) you've forgotton
c) we have different definitions of boredom
While I agree being bored is the student's problem (although I'd hope a decent instructor aims to minimise the potential for boredom), have you really never felt even a smidgin ? Honestly impressed if this is so.
