Interesting that the instructor wanted to learn how to do aikido blindfolded. Has anyone ever tried this with a regular class?
Yup. I've done blindfold randori at a couple of different dojo. After the first time it's not so scary
You must have good awareness amongst the attackers and sensei keeping control of the situation, so tori doesn't end up in a wall or stepping off the tatami
Give it a try someday - it will do wonders for your body movement as that is all you have as a reference when your eyes are shut.
