Re: Poll: Which do you think allows people to learn aikido more effectively?
I wish there were another chioce - for a combination of success and failure.
I like to try new technqiues and expeirment with variations that I dream up. I probably learned more from the times I realized they weren't such great ideas.
We need some success to keep encouraged about training and interested in the art. But it's the failures that make you train harder and force you to practice more.
