Re: First class as a teacher

I have learned that students want to do different things, the teacher wants them to do the same thing. So you have to trick them. Have them work on ma ai for instance and find techniques that are more sensitive to correct ma ai. They think to do many different technques, but in fact they work on the same aspect: ma ai. Both parties happy!

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.
