Aikido goodness

There is something powerful and empowering and exhiliarating about going to a beginner level aikido class, and the only people who show up are you, the sensei and about 5 other students who are all brown or black belts.

Not only do you get a very good workout, but you get to work with people who are so much better than you that you cannot help but learn from them as you go along.

When all of them are exceedingly willing to slow down and work step by step through the areas where you are having problems or not quite getting it yet then it's even better.

Best of all is one when of them looks up at you after a throw and goes 'that was almost perfect' :) Ahhh.. I feel good right now :)
