Re: Who can start aikido?

Too lazy to start a new thread. Why martial artists wake up very early? Is it good for health?

Re: Waking Up Early - Martial Artists

Martial Artists wake up early? You make that sound like a fact written in some legal book somewhere.

Re: Waking Up Early - Martial Artists

I woke up at noon yesterday, 'cause I'm a teenager and I'm supposed to do that kind of thing. :P

Because I have a 12 month old.

I used to teach a 6:30a class, but about 30% of the time it was solo training.

Re: Waking Up Early - Martial Artists

Waking up early can be good for the mind yes....read it in Aikido in Daily Life by Tohei.

If you spring out of bed as soon as you awaken, ready for the day with a postive mindest it can have an impact on your whole day. Just like a year only has one New Years Day, A day only has one moment when you first wake up..... Something to that effect I believe.

Comprende?

To speak ill of anything is against the nature of Aikido

Talking Re: Waking Up Early - Martial Artists

any relation to the "The Paavo Nurmi". ???????? Ghost? Grandson?

I suppose if you are a runner you might get up early to get in an extra workout,

if you are older it's because your bladder is full,

if you're in the middle it might be that you realize that your daughter didn't come home last night

if you're younger it might depend on your bedfellow,

if you really young ,your diaper might be full,

if you're ...................................................

Cheers

Re: Waking Up Early - Martial Artists

Gone of the days when I would have a peasant caste work for me, get my food, make my clothes and such, sadly I cannot commit to a full time schedule. Sooo.... where can I find hours.... well... having a job, a lady and the need to see other people not wearing hakama 6am is my only option.... rubbish.

Re: Waking Up Early - Martial Artists

When I don't have work, I'll sleep from midnight to noon, no problems. It's a habbit I ought to break at one point or another, but I like to procrastinate too.

Re: Waking Up Early - Martial Artists

While I do manage to do six impossible things before breakfast every day, having to deal with people trying to hit me at 6AM is not one of them.

I wake up as late as possible, and I'm several different types of artist!

Re: Waking Up Early - Martial Artists

Getting up early makes the day long. It is possible that those who spend a lot of time sleeping simply think that they are going to live forever.

Re: Waking Up Early - Martial Artists

Acoording to to Koichi Tohei, (As described in his book, "KI In daily life") he used to wake up early and start with a cold shower immediatelly (both in summer/winter).

Re: Waking Up Early - Martial Artists

Early compared to themselves or to the society they live in?

I'm asking because if you wake yourself up before you feel fully rested, you might say it's some sort of self discipline training. But if you just set your internal timer to be 1-2 hours earlier than everybody else then perhaps you're just searching for some quiet, undisturbed practice time.

Re: Waking Up Early - Martial Artists

Early morning is the best time to train - it prepares you for the day. I love it.

Re: Waking Up Early - Martial Artists

heck I strugle to be awake and in work on time (at 10.30 am) let alone wake up for a class. A 6.30 in the morning class and me just would not compute unless I had not been to sleep the night before!
