I am new at aikido and am having a lot of trouble with droping my arms straight down with ki. I am getting better than when I started. It is a steep learning curve. Just think all I have to be is natural. I do not know how to be natural. I am with the Calgary Ki Society. Last night I started out great and degraded with time. I kept wanting to use streangth. Anyhoo, hello all and nice to meet ya! Salutations frome Cow Town. I do not favor Country music in the least.
