This blog entitled "Psychology of Self Care: Aikido as a tool for reflection"
provides us with Susan Harrow's thoughts on how aikido provides her with a way for self-reflection.
From the article: "One Nage (the thrower or attacker) in particular is rough and strong. A few weeks ago he cracked every bone in my hand doing Nikyo. [...] Of course my first instinct is to resist when he pulls me too hard, but I know intellectually that I can be hurt more easily, but my body tries to protect me."
