observation

I just started taking aikido, and I've noticed one thing: No matter how tired I am during the day, I'm always very energetic as soon as I walk through the doors of the dojo, I'm immediately more energetic and happier as well. And the feeling seems to last for at least a few hours after I leave as well. Did this happen to anybody else when they first started? Any explanation for this? I mentioned it to Sensei and all he did was nod knowingly and say "I know."

Yes...and almost 9 years later it still happens

"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."

Re: observation

Its this feeling that completely invalidates all of the aikido v BJJ/TKD/JJ etc etc threads.

If it feels good do it and stuff those that try to put you off!

Re: observation

There's nothing like a trip to the dojo after a "too busy" day at work. It still works for me too. I think part of it is just the positive attitude, and everyone is there because they want to be there. You can never have too much fun.

e ya later
Jill.
