Re: 078) The Teacher: February 2011

George:

It is interesting that you looked at the other side of the proverbial coin. I actually wrote a blog on that area:

I believe that one of the unique contributions that proper Aikido training imbues in us, is a heightened degree of social awareness. Aikido is about connecting (Ai) with the other person. A good teacher should also (hopefully) be a good role model about connecting to others in a healthy, positive manner. This is a process that should contribute to a more connected and caring community (and thereby safer community).
