Aikido As Meditation

4/7/10 w [1s, 9v] B 4 new people. I think I am getting the intro rap down, better and more succinct.
Paired new people with guys who have been here four to five weeks. Having people with more experience definitely helps everyone. In helping a new person, the more experienced person helps them learn faster, and, in having to explain what they are doing, they have to pay closer attention to their own technique. Today more people were asking for help because they were able to tell they weren't doing a technique properly. A real sign of growth.

Note: We were talking about how Aikido is similar and different than Tai Chi, Yoga and other kinds of meditation they have tried and one of the guys came up with a difference I had never thought of before; "With Aikido, you don't just meditate by yourself, you are meditating while trying to accomplish something with someone else. Easier, but harder."
