Learning

In Aikido, you cannot be afraid to do something poorly. You have to be able to stumble, hesitate, make mistakes, take correction, and try again.

Yesterday, we were working on a technique with bokkens. I could execute the technique empty handed, when holding the bokken I would not get the footwork correct. There is much to learn from the bokken.
Failure is the key to success;
Each mistake teaches us something.

--O'Sensei
