Being a beginner

Hello all...
I am new to this forum and new to aikido.
I have been training in aikido for 18 months, but because I work overseas
my actual time spent on the mat is more like 6 months. I'm replying to
Bob's "beginner frustration" thread. I always forget the techniques and I'm constantly relearning them all the time. Lately, I have been referring to a book with the techniques in them to refresh my memory. It sometimes hurts to see my fellow students advance ahead of me but I know it's just
down to the fact that they are spending more time on the mat. I have decided to keep at it...for the rest of my life, and I just hope that the yudansha I train with put up with my comings and goings / and long
learning curve.
Regards, Andy Nemier
