Re: Poll: How often do you disagree with your aikido instructor's technical aikido ex
My Sensei actually encourages us (the "vetran students") to ask him when we disagree. Often, he may send sucha student to research and learn the reason.
I can currently recall one such case in which. When I asked about the Kata being performed, since it was obviously non-pratical. He showed me and my partner (another Yundasha) of our mistake, by showing the omote form.
I also recall cases where I remembered another variation of a kata which he showed, and he explained the diffrences and when to use which.
In our way of learning, such disagreements are a way of growth.
