Re: Poll: Which would you rather have your aikido feel like to others?

ah, the age question always arises. How fast can you run when you are 70, 80? I have done randori practices where nage focuses on being 80 years old, and the 3 attackers are in their 20s. It ties in with something the late Terry Dobson sensei taught in a seminar. The theme was: "the uke brings your death."
