Re: Aikido back in the house...

Every second of my short time training has been about taking aikido principles of the mat and into the rest of my life. I can truthfully say that the longer I train the fewer conflicts I cause, the fewer confrontations become conflicts and I couldn't say HOW that happens, it just does.
Wendy Palmer Sensei has a program called Concious Embodiment which uses aikido principles for not aikidoka to learn how to work with boundaries, self-centering, and acceptance of the "attack" which has also been extrememly valuable in my development.
Both these processes are entirely experiential, results come from Dedicated Practice...
