Re: When Can an Instructor Stop Training?

Hi Tim,

As I said before, I am enjoying this discussion. One of the main things that came out of it for me is that it made me quantify what it is that I am learning/doing/enjoying every time I think of Aikido whether it be here on the forums, training really hard without thinking and just being "in the zone", teaching or just thinking during brief bouts of insomnia.

It's also good that you raised the point because it seems that both you and I don't want to fall into that category of instructors that stop their physical training. The posts that talk about older instructors participating in classes and taking ukemi are very heartening.

I suppose we should always be vigilant about this :-)

cheers,

--Michael
