Re: Badger Stops Looking Up, Finds The Sky Within

Posture has been my cross, causing me persistent back trouble for decades.

Aikido has done far more to correct my posture than all the chiropractors, Alexander technique instructors and my mother's nagging put together.

My sensei has regularly corrected my posture, showing that quite small deviations can cause a technique to fail. I guess that has somehow gotten through to my subconscious that it really IS better to have good posture in the first place.

It still isn't perfect, but none the less it is so much better than I can remember. I sill have to stop and straighten myself up several times an hour, but it's so much better I'm impressed
