Starting on the path

This is some very good advice from Aikithoughts for beginners in aikido. I'll probably proudly steal it and give it to all my beginners. I particularly like the "commit" part. It's the same advice I give my cardiac rehab patients - The frequency and intensity of training don't matter as much as the regularity.
I, of all people, surely know about being busy and having a life and I understand all that. It is good and necessary to do other things. Aikido is not religion and it is not family and it's not employment - so it's pretty far down most sensible folks' lists. But you get the most benefit from consistent attendance - even if it is once a week.
(And again, I'm not ragging on my current students about their attendance. I'm just stating a fact. ;-)


  1. Just came across your blog, and I'm enjoying reading your thoughts on training!

    Glad you found my post interesting. No need to steal it--feel free to use it! :) We've had a lot of new students over the past few months, so I figured it was time to write a few of these things down.

  2. there were several great posts just on your front page. It was hard deciding which one to rave on here. I will definately be adding Aikithoughts to my blogroll. Hope to see you back here soon.
