Re: Poll: How often do you train until the point of exhaustion in your aikido practice?
When I first began training I was exhausted after nearly every class. Now it happens less often, I think because: a) I have been relaxing more and not muscling everything and b) I have learned more about breathing well. And then there are classes like this past Friday, when I was one of three unranked students in our dojo cho's class - which was full of yudansha. I had no chance of keeping up.
