Re: The Bad Habits Thread

I am just curious as to what you consider bad habits in Aikido practice and training.
Bad habits are as varied as the people who employ them.

One bad habit I commonly see even in some 6th dans is people splitting their power by stepping backward (and forward) as they try to deliver power forward, resulting in a wide stance that to me looks more like a runners stretching exercise than good principle.
