Re: Learning How to Learn Aikido
Thanks John - that makes sense to me, and I think it avoids what I percieve as the problem, although it is an indistinct line that I will probably continue to stay well away from until I feel more confident as a teacher.
I think it was Goldsbury Sensei that initially made the comparison with learning a language. A more common analogy I hear is learning to play an instrument, although I like the language analogy particularly. What stands out in both to me is the need for sound basics, and that these basics do not loose their importance and 'truth' just because you become fluent.
