Re: Poll: How important is solo training (ie by yourself) in your aikido training?

I said "very important", since I have been unable to continue practising at a dojo for several months. I use bokken and jo daily and use a tree as resistance. I believe I have continued to improve a sense of center but really miss the fluid dynamics/energy exchange from uke-nage interaction that is so critical...timing, rhythm, ma-ai, I miss terribly.
