Re: Poll: Do you currently care what your aikido looks like?

Gee, I'm one of the minority who doesn't care what it looks like!
Maybe its being short round a tad overweight and now over 50.
Maybe its wearing the knee brace and spending half my aikido training doing non-standard ukemi.
Maybe its that I focus on how it FEELS.
The only thing I'm trying to do in terms of how it looks is, smile and be inviting to my partner.
...and this from a woman who cannot leave the house without exhaustive self examination in the mirror!
