Re: Poll: How important is the notion of "gaining advantage over your partner" in your aikido training?

Is this a "who has the advanatage" question?
I choose me.

Is this a "who has control" question?
I choose me.

Is this a "whose afraid? question?
I choose them.

I remember in one of my first Ikeda Sensei seminars, he stated that when some one grabs him, he has them. Its like when a train car connects to the engine, the engine is still in charge. Take out the slack and move the car along.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
