Re: The Bad Habits Thread

I am just curious as to what you consider bad habits in Aikido practice and training.
Bad habits are as varied as the people who employ them.

One bad habit I commonly see even in some 6th dans is people splitting their power by stepping backward (and forward) as they try to deliver power forward, resulting in a wide stance that to me looks more like a runners stretching exercise than good principle.

Re: The Bad Habits Thread

Correcting more than your rank allows for, arguing incessantly, getting overly frustrated and taking it out on others, not listening to sensei, bad posture, unnecessary cranking on joints during a pin, letting ego get in the way, not respecting all arts, horseplay during class time, not being punctual.
