No, you didn't, but the implication....
That's one possible implication I suppose. My thinking is that the implication is simply that it takes more than hard work. Anything beyond that seems contrived to me.

Again, I don't know why you said anything past "forever"
"Again?" You said this already? In my attempt to be more clear I probably muddied it up more. I'll be the first to admit I tend to think too much and wind up getting tangled. Sorry.

....but, you say folks say things secretive because they don't intend to be staightforward....hmmm....
If I did, I meant to say some people would describe such behavior as not being straightforward. I think it's basically straightforward when the student has reached the necessary level of understanding, whatever that may be.

Ok, Mary, Mary, quite contrary, my point is that folks that have a background in MA, can learn Aikido much faster than those who're just starting out and chose Aikido as their first MA....and this says much to me about you....
Does it? Let me return the favor and say that your whole approach to discourse says much to me about you. Make of that what you will.
