Wow Robert Nadeau describing learning Aikido is something else. I appreciate his communication of thoughts. But he is on a whole other level of thinking regarding his Aikido…
I can appreciate his thinking though. As one progresses through stages in Aikido, the kinesthetic feel changes and you begin to disregard the person on the other end as irrelevant to how you perform techniques.
To quantify in words is almost impossible and I have discovered that no matter how much you will someone to understand what your doing, they just have to go through the repetition before they understand their body enough.
Great interview but his understanding is way beyond mine. Soon though…Soon!
