Obviously training with one or a few selected partners is:

1. Not so good for your technique.
2. Impolite towards the other dojo members.

In our dojo, you have to change the partner with every change of technique. I have seen in some Iwama dojos teachers pairing students together, which I find is a good idea especially in beginners classes.

I have seen some people truly attached to eachother in an inseparable way, and I honestly find it disgusting. It is aikido that we're learning after all, not Tango.

Cheers,
Edward
