Thank you for the kind words!

Yes exactly, what I was trying to say was, different people learn different ways and we might not always realize that the irritating behaviour of a student or fellow student maybe is just them trying to do the best they can.

But at the same time, the teacher doesn't have to provide everything, as a student I can also help myself by for example reading and writing about aikido hear on Aikiweb, keeping a diary, writing a blog, etc. if that is something I need in order to learn.
