Re: Am I Tough Enough to Be a Beginner?

Thanks for the kind words, everyone!

Jonathan: what Tiger Woods did was to completely retool his swing. In aikido, that's similar to what some people experience when they start studying internal power, a new way of using the body. You might also encounter it when transitioning to a new dojo's way of doing things. And yes, trying to change something that fundamental will cause your results to slide backward for a while.
