They didn't have the incentive to work hard and consistently. They wanted to talk about it, to be part of the "group", but they didn't have the drive to follow through.

Working hard to research and practice Aikido correctly is like going to Heaven. Everyone wants to go there....... but not yet.



Mike
It would seem we agree on something after all.
Hard work and consistency are key. An often heard phrase in our dojo was; "shut-up and train."

Regarding the heaven thing, I heard it a little differently:
Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to do what it takes to get there.

Regarding wanting to be part of the group; I know very little about that.
