Re: Dead end?

Being told you are very good at your stage is great and I am sure very encouraging. I felt much like you when I was just 9 months in as well...

4 years later I look back and think how little I knew. Sure, for a beginner I was good at some aspects of aikido.... for a no-kyu. But that did not mean I was good at aikido.

And the really crazy thing is.. the longer you train and the more you learn, the bigger aikido gets and the more you realize you don't know anything.... which just makes it all the more fascinating.
