Re: Poll: How often do you verbally correct students senior to yourself who are making mistakes during aikido training?

Because I also teach, others will often ask for my help. I offer it when I can. Sometimes I have to respond that I'm not teaching that night. Other times I offer what help I can and point out to those more experienced than I am our relative experience levels.

That being said, we all have our favorite techniques and our, um, least favorite techniques. So, sometimes, I'm actually better at a particular technique than someone more experienced than I am. I offer my help and hope that they will return the favor when we go on to the half dozen other techniques that aren't personal favorites.

Mostly, they do. And that way we both get better at Aikido.
