Re: "Proactive" Aikido?
When you refer to Lee's inflexibility she ask are you referring to it physically or mentally?
The answer to both of those is...yoga. She found yoga and is now an instructor. She is a much more centered and peaceful individual that is both more flexible physically and mentally.
I can't get her back into the dojo!
Also, on the ground..I burned in on a drop zone two years ago, and found out after an MRI that I had arthritis and degenerative disc disease, I can't run because my sciatic nerve gets injured and my leg goes numb...however, I have found that jiujitsu does not affect my back....aikido seems to be harder on it for some reason.
Good to talk to you!
