Teaching is another aspect of training. Ron always says to me "teach what I know." Now I can teach what I want to explore.
I believe this is the single most important reason to start teaching. You direct your own exploration, rather than follow the one of someone else....

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.
