Re: Poll: Are you ever bored during aikido class?

Yes. I agree, as a student.

It isn't guaranteed to be interesting, fun, or even understandable at the moment.
...but I'm wary as a teacher. I strive to keep my classes engaging and relevant. I see other teachers using such reasoning to blame students for poor lessons.

For myself, I can't honestly say I can remember ever being bored in my almost sixty years in this lifetime.
Congratulations. No irony intended. I'm jealous.

Thanks for the response.
