    Once an Aikido guy spilled a freshly opened bottle of beer. What an asshole that guy was.

    This one time, at Aikido Camp, I stuck a bokken in my *****.
    Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

    That doesn't count because we were sort of looking for Aikido/asshole stories.

    Actually I had the same experience as the OP (aside from the instructor issue). Alot of passive aggressiveness, large egos and delusional ideas of self-defense. And it has been the ONLY training place I have seen this in. Just sayin'.
    There is no cheating, there is only jiu-jitsu.

    The idea that somehow all the assholes in MA gravitate to Aikido has no merit. It sure as Hell attracts a lot of hippies though.

    hmm.. I have only encountered real assholes while training aikido, ninjitsu and tae kwon do. they all seemed to suffer from the "angry little guy syndrom" if you can deciper that o_O

    guys like this should do something positive with their selfimage instead of joining a delusional cult.

    I know an asshole when I see one.
    Aikido has its own share of these, not more but still not less than any other martial art.
    What irks me most by the Aikidoka is that they are usually good at remaining politically correct, though they are/were still assholes per se.

    Yup, now I'm sure there was nothing passive-aggressive about the OP.

    No arrogance, it was a yellow belt, that's a huge achievement.

    And not bitter about the whole experience.

    Yeah, that Seagal guy is definitely representative of the Aikido community.

    I think we can look at the OP as a good example.

    Now let's put aikido, ninjitsu and tae kwon do into the same asshole bucket. Let's add all Mcdonalds workers too because one of them was rude to me last night at the drive-through. They must all have a shitty attitude. Maybe we can throw in all people who drive blue Honda Accords too. I did get cut off in traffic on my way home from McDonalds.

    I've definitely come across the overconfident/arrogant delusional ideas of self defence.

    But aside from that, I wouldn't have classed the people I met as assholes. They just thought they were better in a fight than others.

    but again, i've only met a few people who do aikido.

    Stuck a bokken in someone else's ***** (against their will)?
