Re: Am I Tough Enough to Be a Beginner?

Interesting read.

Carina summarises it perfectly: do as your teacher does, even if you do not understand (yet?).
It is hard to face you problems, but in there lies your progress.

In class I always say it is ok to do things badly, but try not to keep doing things badly. Understand and improve...study.
Make a mistake once and never again

Thanx for putting this in writing Katherine.

In a real fight:
* If you make a bad decision, you die.
* If you don't decide anything, you die.
Aikido teaches you how to decide.
