Since Aikido is such a rich martial art, I'm sure there are many things that people can get out of it. I am curious what are some of the goals people have for thier Aikido?
I am hoping that Aikido will help me to learn to adapt and make split-second decisions without pausing and thinking about it. I forget what it is called but occasionaly we practice where uke attacks with a specific attack and nage gets to choose any technique. I tend to freeze when forced to decide what to do. I have this problem outside of the dojo too (light turns yellow, do I speed up or stop? I usually brake, accelerate, break, accelerate, etc.) so I am hoping to learn this from Aikido and apply it outside the dojo.
Does anyone else have tangible goals like this that they want to get from thier aikido?
