Re: Aikido survivors

Seen some cases of physical burnout Seen some cases of political burnout. Seen some cases of marriage. Seen some cases of finding what they were really looking for. Seen some cases where the student was thrown out and told not to come back to train for a certain time. Seen some cases of new habits. Seen some cases of physical infirmaties. Seen some cases of moving away and not having anyone else to practice with (lack of spirit). Seen some cases of got what they came for. Seen some cases of loss of habit after an injury. Seen some cases where the person got into facing a brick wall and quitting out of frustration. Seen some cases where the chief instructor told a student to go practice something else that he/she determined would be more suitable for them. Seen some cases where the student went away and died before coming back.

A better question might be, why the hell do you stay?
