Re: Poll: Do you currently care what your aikido looks like?

I voted "no" but I didn't quite get the question. I resumed Aikido 10 months ago, having first looked at it in the mid-'80s. But even if I hadn't forgot much of what I learned then, I ma doign a different style from then, too, so I am pretty much back at zero.

My forward ukemi are a work in progress that's progressing slowly. As far as my nage waza, I get yelled at often enough for missing this or that detail, so I guess it looks, if not pretty BLEEPing horrible, less than perfect.

So best not to lose sleep over it and keep training.
