Re: Things To Tell A New Aikido Student

Great advice you folks are passing on to the newbies!
I also am learning something reading the advice. I asked Jun to change the title from 100 Things since we have so much to share!
Keep 'em coming.

101. Finsih the technique you started.

(For example, If you start doing an Omote instead of an Ura then finish the Omote. The goal is not just to do the right technique but to do it smoothly and flowing. Stopping the technique saying "Wait, wrong Side" is not good form. Finish the technique you started and then do the correct technique the next time! Stopping and hesitation on the street will be dangerous!)
