Re: Training at Home

I know it is a late reply, but I am new to the forums. I also recently began training and there are two things, I have discovered, that help me with the physical part of Aikido. One is to do rowing excersises in front of a mirror so I can work on my posture and balance. I try to get the breathing down and that helps me relax in class. The other is to find doors that can be pushed open without turning a knob and use my center to open them. Just put your hand on it and think of touching the ground behind it. The trick is how to explain what you are doing to your boss when he sees you.
