Re: Poll: How important is physical aesthetics in your aikido training?
Flow.....................does your aikido dance ? (George Leonard."The Ultimate Athlete" and I paraphrase; The ultimate athlete is not necessarily a dancer but the ultimate athlete dances.) Have you ever seen a really good waiter in a restaurant who is there only when you need them , who moves with ease between tables with the meals balanced on their arms, have you ever watched a skilled performance. That is good aikido.
P.S. I have even seen this in Aikido !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
