I see...

Maybe it would be better to ask the question, "Do you practice Aikido in daily life?" (not just on the mat).

For me, that answer would be, "I'm starting to."

Relaxing, keeping one point, keeping one mind and body, and extending Ki, in order to learn all of those, I have to try to practice it in daily life. But now, I have trouble on opening doors. I am some how never satisfied on how I open a door, any door, I always feel that it is the hardest keeping all of the above.

Now, I pay attention on how I stand and walk, how I sit, even when I pick up a glass to drink. I'm not at the level at being able to keep those principles while asleep yet.
