If Ashida Kim did Aikido, and was also a maths teacher - that was my Instructor.
He never pursued the 'Aikibabes', being married with children, etc.. So I was happy to fill that Dojo role ^^

When I was teaching at Tulane U., I was just "Ben" or "coach". As I had USA Judo coach certifications and had signed on to the ethics code, fucking students was frowned upon. Every now and then we would get chicks who got turned on by wrestling with guys, it was pretty obvious what was going on. I'd just stay away from them and let the kyu grades chase them around. Too much drama for me. It was very tempting, though, and I have to admit I did succumb once, but I thought she was marriage material. Oh, how wrong I was.

Also, I allowed them to call me Sensei (even though the more correct term is probably Sempei), despite both terms being ego-fuelled and obnoxious.
That's right. I was a whore.

Slightly related story. When I was doing Aikido for a while in college (much to my eternal anger I recently found out, via Omega, that an awesome Sambo/Judo guy was like 10 minutes away from my campus but I never knew it, God damn early search engine days) I trained at a small dojo with guys who were more in the Aikijujutsu vein (i.e. slightly, and I do mean slightly, less pussyfied) but there was also a college Aikido club filled with....you guessed it....complete pussies. The main guy I knew who trained with them was a tall, doughy, pasty white guy who walked around campus wearing those renaissance fair elf boots that lace up, a thin leather head band, and sometimes a cape. That pretty much told me all I needed to know about them.

After 1+ year of Aikido, I wanted to start training in a practical martial art (JUDO!!!) along with Aikido. I went into observe a Judo class, only to find bunch of chicks who were having too much fun doing newaza with guys or giggling madly as they fell on top of the guys with poorly executed throws. I got disgusted with the foolery and didn't return to Judo club till 4 months ago. However, it turns out the day I went in for an observation was one day out of the ordinary where things ran amok. Oh all the Judo I could have done for the year...
