Re: Wanted for a Beginner: Information, Suggestions, ?

I was once told to just stay on the mat or keep going to class. No matter what problem, no matter what question, what pain, or what person you don't like. No matter what distraction or what personal issues come up, just keep going to class on a regular basis. Try your best, be there to learn, make it about Aikido and not anything else and relax and enjoy.
Everything else will fall into place if you have a good instructor.
