Re: Poll: Do you currently care what your aikido looks like?
I care how my aikido looks....because 9 times out of 10, that's how sensei can tell what I'm doing wrong. (Unless he is uke for me, then he sure doesn't need to see much) A lot of times now, I know exactly what he is going to correct right after I do it....because I know it probably didn't look very good, even from across the room. <grin>
Maybe this will all change one day, but I'm only 3rd kyu and only training for a little over 2 years.
