How do you check if you are really improving?
Fine if you are doing dance or gymnastics yoga or something , but aikido is a martial art.... Martial arts were designed to be for self defence, not tiddly winks, draughts or snakes and ladders.... and for Henry....... ribbon twirling (only joking sensei!!)
If you want to get fit there are far better ways of doing it.....
