Re: Morning, Noon, or Evening

I prefer the mornings but now I am training at night due to work. I like starting my day off with training it is better than coffee anyday.

Re: Morning, Noon, or Evening

I do better if I can get my lazy butt out of bed and train in the mornings. Once awake and showered, my energy level is better in the morning, the training is extremely enjoyable, and I have less problems falling asleep at night if I train in the morning.

John Stevens always told me that the morning was for training, the rest of the day for work, and the evenings for reading and contemplation.

Of course, the only morning training I do is on Saturdays. 6:30 training at the main school on a weekday just doesn't seem to work for me somehow. Maybe one day I'll get over being lazy, and just bite the bullet and do it. I hear they have really great classes!

Best,
Ron

That sounds like a great day.
Still, I must confess that I really have to struggle to manage well on a morning class. I am most comfortable with evening classes - but that might very well be out of habit. That's how I started, and that's how it's been for all the years I have practiced aikido - except for seminars, Hombu visits, and such.

Re: Morning, Noon, or Evening

I know what you mean...I really am a late night person, especially if I don't have to get up the next morning! I really liked the time I spent with John Stevens, I wish I could have trained in his dojo in Japan...but he required attendence about 6 days a week, and all classes in the morning...I don't think I would have lasted!

I know some have issues with his work, but I do really respect the man, and his aikido. Our perspectives were never completely aligned...probably less so now, but I will never forget the times taking ukemi for him, drinking a beer with him, visiting east coast dojo with him.

Best,
Ron
