Re: Poll: Which is more important for you in your aikido training?

I think the question needs re-setting - Logically, there are four possible types:

1 Skilled practitioner + Good students = Good learning environment.
2 Skilled practitioner + Bad students = Teacher has Aikido skill but is a bad teacher = Bad learning environment.
3 Bad practitioner + Good students = Teacher lacks Aikido skill but is a good teacher = Good learning environment, but limited.
4 Bad practitioner + Bad students = Bad learning environment.

It is obvious which is best: Now consider what you have for yourself, and where you want to be in the future.
