What's your sensei teaching you?
Well I was talking to a fellow Aikidokan after class tonight and we some how (Gee I wonder) got on the subject: What is Sensei Riggs teaching us? Well after quite a bit of thought we came to the conclusion that he's not teaching us Aikido. But rather he is teaching us how to learn and pick up the sublties of aikido. This is of course being done through Aikido. However in my opinion is more valuable then just learning Aikido. It will allow us to venture out into seminars and give us and extra push to catching the little sublities other people might not catch. So my question: Is your Sensei teaching you Aikido or is he/she teaching you how to learn Aikido, and which do you think is more valuable? Can you even have one with out the other?
