Honestly, and this is my personal opinion, I think its one of the best reasons to make a switch to another style, or to add another style to one's training schedule. Nothing was quite so refreshing for me as getting into an Aikido class where I was just a student, getting to be the one asking the questions instead of being asked an answering them. It was really nice to get back to being more of a student and less of a teacher for a time.

This is a great read Brian, thanks for sharing your journey with us

It must have been hard starting over as a white belt. Not just for the fact that you have to be humble and step to the back of the class but also very hard physically and mentally to rewrite the mechanics. I think it's bad enough trying to pick up a different style and different methodology of moving but when transitioning from one curriculum to another (and a style of TKD that was very similar) it must have been difficult. I'm paraphrasing but one of the masters I sometimes train with often says: "I can correct a white belt in a day, a colour belt in a few weeks but a black belt will take many months".

Was there much difference between the ATA's methods and Sun Yi's style?
