Quote From Class

Go where the pain leads you.

~Ron, to a white belt student as uke in a sankyo tenkan technique

This is may be good advice outside of aikido, but I’m not quite sure how.


  1. Smart ass response:
    If the pain is bad enough, let it lead you to a doctor.

  2. It’s certainly good advice in the context of psychotherapy.

  3. Maybe this means look for the source of your pain. Don’t avoid it.
