Re: 085) Aikido Is Simple, Not Easy: September 2011

Interesting read. Thanx.

Much of the trouble we have doing a technique is caused by overdoing it. Probably a bit due to our culture (more, longer, higher, faster, stronger is better). Students feel they must do something to get results. All too often when they let go, the teacher says that was really good and they are lost as to why that was any good.

Note to self: find way to integrate these exercises in class

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.
