    Well, at least I get SOME e-humor validation.

    Seriously, if you people didn't read Mercer Mayer/have Mercer Mayer read to you as children, then you missed out.

    Never heard of it, but you were born my senior year in college. So it may be a little after my time.

    Did they still have "Big Chief" note books when you went to school?
    People often tell me that I fail to see the gravity of the situation.
    I see the gravity, and I say...

    Step right up folks and watch me defy gravity!

    If you've still got any young kids, you might want to check him out. His stories are wonderful. If you've got older kids, I guess you'll just have to wait for grandchildren.

    I don't think I was lucky enough to encounter "Big Chief" in my primary or secondary education.

Executing techinques against halfassed uncommited attacks is unrealistic. I've never seen Aikido practiced against a crisp one-two (or even a crisp retracted jab or cross).
    Sigh... From the sounds of it you guys are really unlucky having meet many crappy aiki-dojo. I will say no more... I bow in humble retreat and am glad my training hasn't been similar to as what you have described.

    From what I gather from the various posters, there are certain areas which my current training may not have addressed. It is good that I am expose to you guys' train of thoughts and will specifically address them in my continous martial endeavour. In that sense, thanks.

    Picture is static, aikido is dynamic. I don't think that the technique is a standing udegrami. It is continues down to the floor; or it is a shoulder dislocation technique if applied with undue care to the uke.

    The Berenstein Bears books are a very solid choice as well.

    What did you say Kage Kaze. There should be a Samurai Larpers Vs. Ninja Larpers thread.
