Re: Repetitions scheme

Personally on partner practice in aikido, I don't like the common left side, right side, left side, right side, switch roles. I learn better if I can do more reps on one side and more reps overall, and if really working on solving a problem or working something out would much prefer left side 4 times, right side 4 times, then switch. OTOH, if I am the senior partner and working on basics with a junior, while I think there is value there too on staying on one side for more turns, I feel it is beneficial for me to stay in the uke role longer and I might do nage once on each side then switch roles and let them stay on nage role for quite a while.
