Re: Aikido back in the house...

Trying to remain calm and centered is always a help in our daily lives. (of course)
Raising kids is a true test of that very thing....the benefits of training become clear when you think about it.
Raised three daughters, I wish I had been more centered in the daily dealings with them....
less emotional response, better control over the impulsiveness of speech, the list goes on, not to mention the benefits of a brisk yonkyo !

Play nice, practice hard, but remember, this is a MARTIAL art!
