    I wonder if there is a reverse inkio if they try to grab your tramp stamp?

    Forgive my lack of japanese language skills, but the best transliteration I could get of that was "leave my horse hole undefiled"?

    I got "villain from donkey asshole" but whatever. There are a few common themes in there, the gist is gotten.

Despite the fact that many martial traditions have a greater bias toward this methodology.

    I studied both Iwama and Aikikai versions of Aikido to middle senior dan grade. I never had issues with what I was studying (but then by background isn't run of the mill) so I see where aikido fails as a means of fighting.

    For some reason Aikido seems to attract a larger number of budo-snobs, perhaps that's to do with the whole ideological thing of Ueshiba - who really knows. What I do know for sure, is that it isn't the physical discipline's fault - it's people who are the weak part of the equitation. IE their attitudes.
    there are still quite a few people who believe that "ju" (sorry no kanji) is the main principle/strategy in Judo, e.g., no force on force, always yielding. In a metaphorical sense, I can see the point. Most suffering is caused by resistance to the presence, but in a physical sense, resistance/non resistance have to be used as appropriate in the given situation, which is an extension/application of Seiryoku Zenyo.

    Many of the aikidoka I've interacted with didn't get that either.

    Aikido looks kind of fun. I think I'll try it.

    i mean first I'll do Judo for the next twenty years- but then after that I think Aikido might be cool to do. But I might change my mind.

    Logical fallacy.

    I did aikido for about a year when I was fourteen. My sensei was a gay, chubby middleaged man who also worked as a food critic and wrote books about astrology. He spoke in a deep, melodic voice when he preached the gospel of the aiki to us, his disciples. His hands were warm and his skin soft, yet his grip was firm and unyielding.

    I shall never forget him, nor his teachings.

    I somehow picture him to look like a buff Freddie Mercury.
