In Search of Excellence in Aikido
I just wanted to get your views/experiences on what it takes to really excel in Aikido. There are only a select few who really do excellent aikido while I guess majority of us do not know (YET) what it takes to become an expert, even though we're training for decades.
Although we have the adage "practice makes perfect", I don't think this is enough IMHO. There must be some other ingredients to complete the "recipe".
The few can be fortunate enough to find what they are seeking in their lifetime but most would search and search but always lead to a deadend.
