Re: How long does it really take?

Dear All,
It is not a question of how many days , weeks , months or years it takes to understand Aikido .Rather than think that by practicing more one improves,I feel that one should practice and try to understand the underlying principles of aikido .This means focusing on Kihon Waza. When you can embody the basics, all else becomes easier.A practice of one hour a week where you train diligently and earnestly is much more effective than spending valuable time just playing around.Cheers,Joe.
