Aikido is the Japanese martial art developed by Morehei Ueshiba -- one the greatest Japanese senseis.
I studied aikido for fifteen years -- hard practice 3 or 4 times a week, as well as, summer camps in New England and beyond.
"I get it, this is a dojo..."
Now, years later, I'm still practicing the techniques our aikido senseis taught us.
Go slow, stop and fix, repeat...
(I pause here and respectfully bow to the late, lamented
• Kanai-sensei of Boston Aikikai, and
• Kawahara-sensei of British Columbia Aikikai)
Turns out this is the best way to learn -- (see Dan Coyne's The Talent Code for more).
I'll say it again: Go slow, stop and fix, repeat...
So easy to say...
Do we have the guts & discipline to do?
