Re: Being overly complacent as Uke
Aikido can't really have a reputation. Anyone who sits around disparaging it probably needs to get busy doing something else.
Learning how to be a good uke is not easy. It really is a dedicated practice. Listen to your instructor and really try to put into motion the ideas your instructor is talking about. Maybe you will learn some things about yourself.
I was taught Aikido is not about fighting...I have to let go of what I think I know all the time. Then I can really learn.
