Frustrating Isn't that what being a beginner is all about?

Re: Your Life in Aikido in 2009 in One Word

Meh. Pretty much sums it up. This year I will strive to reach a Bah-worthy level of training. If I keep at it, by 2011 my aikido will merit a: don't quit your day-job!. I feel the long term view is important when setting goals...

Jumpstart.

Draw strength from stillness. Learn to act without acting. And never underestimate a samurai cat.
