Re: Are People Really Training to Get Better?

Thanks George......interesting stuff.
When Ron changed our weapons practice I experienced exactly what you described...I felt angry and vitimized.
Since I am married to him besides being his senior student...I felt the need to stay training with him more than other senior students might have...a few did leave.
Those of who stayed have enjoyed a wonderful journey.

On another note after I gained about 20 pounds my knees were killing me...I had to decide if food was more important than Aikido. It wasn't....great motivation to lose weight and keep training for the rest of my life. Change is neither good not bad....it is constant.

best,
Mary
