In Humor Aikidoka on the Roof - Tradition Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #16 New 12-30-2010 11:59 AM
[With apologies to Bock and Harnick, the creators of Fiddler on the Roof]
"An Aikidoka on the roof. Sounds crazy, no? But in our little Aikido Dojo, you might say every one of us is an aikidoka on the roof, trying to practice a pleasant, simple technique without breaking her neck. It isn't easy. You may ask, why do we stay up there if it's so dangerous? We stay because the Aikido Dojo is our home... And how do we keep our balance? That I can tell you
in one word... Tradition."

Tradition, tradition... tradition
Tradition, tradition... tradition

"Because of our traditions, we've kept our balance for many, many years. Here in the Aikido Dojo we have traditions for everything... how to eat, how to sleep, even, how to wear clothes. For instance, we always keep a picture of the Founder and always wear a hakama (well at least when we reach shodan)... This shows our constant devotion to the Founder. You may ask, how did this tradition start? I'll tell you - I don't know. But it's a tradition... Because of our traditions, everyone knows who she is and what the Founder expects her to do."
