Re: Menace 2 society
I thought I had one of our solo exercises down, and then the head instructor made a small correction and now I can't do it at all. (Our blue-belt twelve-year-old was asked to lead it for the class, which gives him the right to make comments: he looked at me and said, "Hate to say it, Mary, but you look like a robot.")
This just happens, and eventually things will get better. If it's any comfort, it will probably keep happening all the way along your aikido career, but the level you rise to each time you recover will be higher.
