Re: intuition vs. speed

Good post George, thanks.

I agree fully with what you write, my own teacher speaks at length about this very subject. I think it goes some way towards explaining the sheer length of time it takes to be really good at aikido. Working on a purely physical level aikido is limited, working on the mind level of which you speak, it is virtually limitless?

I have had the 'glimpses' of the union with the attackers mind, I train to have more.

regards,

Mark
