I went into Aikido looking for how to do these odd ki-strengths, etc. After 8 years of all the BS in a number of Aikido dojo's, I evaluated my progress in ki-related strengths, had little to show for it, and walked out I.e, I try to keep my eye on the ball and not get distracted by every side-issue that can draw you off the mark. So my suggestion is figure out exactly what you're trying to do, focus, and do it. Quit getting so distracted.
I am not the least little bit distracted. I go to class all the time...in fact I just got back from teaching one.
Your response did not provide a source.
You were saying that atheltism is why women don't advance in Aikido...I am saying that has nothing to do with it and sexism does.
I am not whining about it. I love to train and will continue to no matter what
