Well, you can't learn aikido by "rote"... if you do, you are merely practising the empty shell of aikido technique.

I agree with wristtwister. Go train with other groups, expand your horizons and perceptions. Maybe something will "click" for you.

My first six years were spent at the only other Aikido dojo in our area (now gone). That sensei taught by rote. It stuck in motor memory and is still there to this day after six years at a dojo where ALL the sensei(s) "hint" and occasionally disagree with each other on details. LOL

Empty shell is better than nothing. And it is still better than Taibo. ;-)

It is a perfect world - inhabited by imperfect people who insist on completely wrecking it for me. hehe
