Hi Michael

first time I run into (well figuratively speaking) another AT - teacher & aikidoist here on Aikiweb! I live in Holland, finished training as a teacher a year ago, aikido since '99. Welcome on the boards!

At the Jikishinkan dojo in Utrecht. www.jikishinkan.org -the website is in Dutch but I'm guessing that you can understand written Dutch somewhat...

So - how does being an AT teacher influence your aikido practice?

Hi Michael.

Nice to see another Dane in here

but in the mastery of his passions.

Well I was doing aikido first. But overall I think that the quality of contact with another human is much the same, and thereby the 2 kinds of work is inspiring each other.
So often I see myself teaching an aspect at the aikido class, that came to my mind in an Alexander lesson, and also the other way around.

As an AT teacher, you have to touch the pupil with a non-doing mind and _hand_ - moving the pupil without manipulation, intention, without having a fixed idea where we should end. And I like to do Aikido the same way, this is what I think is in the words "takemusu aikido"

best regards
Michael
