My most frustrating experience was when a dan grade tried to explain to me why Yamada sensei was 'doing it all wrong' during a course, and kept correcting me for doing the same - I was dumbfounded.

Through aikido I've investigated chinese philosophies, and do now believe that existence is one whole and individuality is a dillusion. I believe this has made me less judgemental, less frightened of situations, less hateful and less likely to have my ego bruised.
