Another memory is stressing out the 2nd kyu who was teaching me at first, because I just didnt get it. (The language was different as well as Aikido.)
He stayed well away from me until I was able to rank and he knew I finally had a clue about some aspects of Aikido.
nice not to cause frustration now due to my slow learning.
But along with that came the inspiration to seek out information elsewhere.
Thats how I found you guys here at Aiki web as well as the Aikido 3D software which helped me a lot.
(Some of you guys have had great comments which have gone a long ways, thanks for your time...you know who you are.)
