Re: 100 Things To Tell A New Aikido Student

As a companion
100 things to tell people working with new students anyone?

1. They are gonna be stiff
2. They can't relax yet even if they want to
3. Even though it creates pain they don't know how to receive a lock/pin
4. They don't know when to fall\
5. They are not challenging you they just don't understand yet
6. They can only learn one thing at a time
7. A 5 degree adjustment of the left foot whilst rotating center and cutting down is not one thing
8. Teach success through allowing them to finish technique before correcting
