Re: Poll: How much progress do you think you made in aikido in 2006?

Physically degraded... haven't been training regularly for 2 years... just restarted...

Mentally... improved... as in the understanding of the art. Since I was unable to practice physically at the dojo, I practice implementing Aikido in daily life. I also had a number of discussions with fellow practitioners on teh subject matter.

Spiritually degraded compared to 3 years ago. I went against my ideals and principles, being a hypocrite on numerous occasions, some of them were quite serious. But, I'm learning from this and hopefully I could become better.

Well, life has its ups and downs... but how we deal with it is what really matters...

When I have to die by the sword, I will do so with honor.
