I know tai-chi practitioners who have the same problems staying mindful of the martial aspects of their art. A certain amount of mental focus is doubtless necessary to do so, be it tai-chi or aikido.
Yes agreed.
We bill it as a martial art but seldom train like it is.
The body follows the head and Ki follows focus (always aim through the center to a balance point).
Like so many things, a slight change in intent makes a big change in behavior.
Thanks for reading, responding, and the kind words.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
