Please, I am a perpetual student, so it is Sempai.

While I would agree that it is your role to teach, if the other person want to progress in Aikido (or anything) it is their role to learn.

Keep explaining the nature and purpose of Keiko (training). I never get anything on the first hundred presentations. I think i used to be that resistant uke, because I didn't know how to relax. Be patient and compassionate.

Their resistance to you, and yours to them, is more mental than physical. Perhaps as you accept and relax more, they will too.
Thank you, sempai.

That's a good advice and will help me and hopefully Tommy, too
