Well, apparently his methods worked on the ladies... some of the time
Not very useful for aikido though. Especially since whenever I ask him how to do this and that his only response is "get better"
I never ever get a chance to finish a technique because he knows how to kaishi waza out of it, so I never know if I'm getting better or not.
I'm pretty sure I can tell if someone in a bar/night club is about to throw a punch at me. I definitely can not tell when, back when I was training in Paris, my dojomate would sneak up behind me and table-flip or kubisime me. Although their intention was definitely not murderous, so prolly why I can't tell
I did considered stopped training with him, but that means I'll have to manage alone. Besides, I was wondering if that's simply my bruised ego talking and that I have to come to terms with the fact that there are stuffs in Aikido that I can't understand at this level.
But it seems that if his tutelage doesn't result in anything but frustration, I'm better off just working solo on my tai sabakis.
