Re: Poll: How physically challenging is your current aikido dojo for you?
IMHO, my current (and only) Dojo has never challenged me. It has always welcomed me. Its a very nice well-behaved building.
Now the workouts were another matter. At first, the workouts were very challenging. It was not the techniques or movement for a Tori position, but the falls and rolls from the Uke position that challenged me. Its that falling down and getting up thing.
And everytime I kinda get used to the challenge, we tend to up the intensity to keep it a challenge.
I like it that way.
