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

I agree that good Aikido also looks good. But during training I do anot worry about what my Aikido looks like, nor could I asses that in any way - there are no mirrors in the dojo.

I do distinctly remember our sensei telling us in the beginners class that when we practice at home, we shouldn't practice in front of a mirror. We should remain focus on sensing the movement and postures of our body rather than looking in the mirror and relying on it's judgement.
