Re: Poll: Do you think telling someone to "relax" is helpful in aikido training?

In the short-term, no, it frustrated me because I thought I was relaxed.

In the long-run, yes, because they could feel the tension, I could not, and as a result of their kind feedback, I was able to perhaps relax a little more.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
