Re: Poll: Are you ever bored during aikido class?
I was in the "yes I been bored" category. I was once in a class were an instructor took %75 present of a class period explaining a point which every student understood with in 5 minutes. I know some will say, "perhaps the students did not understand what the instructor was explaining, and that's why he took that long" My answer to that is: "no, we got it". The instructor just go into Teacher head space and was not able to pull out.
In short we are responsible for how we approach our own training, but in a fair discussion you cant let the instructor off the hook just because he/she has the title Sensei.
