Re: Aikidoka learning Japanese

heh, i'd say it's not even that important to speak Japanese while training in Japan. Some of the sensei don't even speak much Japanese to the Japanese students. I'd definitely not let the language stop me from starting. Like new words in English, once you hear and use them a few times, they'll stick.
