Re: Principle, Practical, and Practice

Elegant, thanks!

Too many beginning students, and quite a few of the rest of us (!!!) could stand to think more about principle and less about the practical. It's natural, I think, to want to rush through and throw uke and hear them hit the mat with a satisfying thunk. But too much of that too early leads to 'muscle-do' and not aikido.

Cheers,
Garth
