Re: Poll: How much progress do you think you made in aikido in 2006?
Thalib - you sound like you reached a level, then were challenged in it. That is progress!
I progressed tremendously in defeating my own stupid arrogance. I have not mastered myself as I thought - I need psychological counseling - again.
Aikido helped me get to the center of the onion of my emotional injuries. I have worked very hard on facing myself for the past three years, with aikido at the center of my path. I hoped to be done soon, but my reward is that I need more hard work to continue healing.
Aikido is about healing for me, so I progressed well, and have a long way to go.
