Re: Poll: Can slow training in aikido be intense for you?

All my training is rehab. My Senseis know this and emphasize slow training for me. Sometimes the pain is so intense from stretching muscles and tendons that have been locked down for years that I cry out in class.

Embarrassing, but that's aikido for me. The other students are very compassionate about helping me.

I am brining my opinion of myself into line with the reality of my skill level as well.
