Thank you for the information. this helps a lot in my present muddle.
Until a year ago or so I was purely learning Aikido by doing. I tried , counter to my usual approach, to avoid intelectualizing, reading or otherwise getting too much theory in my head. I made a comment about a year ago in class, which got me a strange look in that regards from sensei. ..nothing wrong with reading..
So now, I find myself trying to tie back so much information with all these exercises which I've "done". Well, I'm still sorting it out.
