Teachers and Students

This article is taken from an equestrian website but I found that it resonates deeply with my feelings about choosing a teacher in aikido as too. Thought some of you might enjoy it as well.

Re: Teachers and Students

"A master must be the right age. A young teacher is too inexperienced. An older one will be too impatient, too irritable, and too interested in completing his or her own spiritual quest. In general, it is best to begin one's study with a master who is between the ages of fifty and sixty-five"

Thought this was an interesting point

Enjoy the journey
