I recently ‘volunteered’ myself to help the Aikido students in NUS (National University of Singapore) write 2 parts of their ‘How-to’ Aikido manual.
“Locks and Throws”
It started me wondering, what can I tell a beginner, about locks and throws of Aikido? Those who are familiar with my blogs will get a sense that I seldom like to delve into technical and how and how to, since I figured that there are many, many, many videos and books out there which can do that.
So I makes me wonder why the hell did I decide to volunteer my knowledge?
Truth to be told, I guess I was trying to ‘show off’. Admittedly I think my ego got a better hold of me, but now that I’ve given my word, the better part of my ego has to make sure that I better do a good job!
