I was having coffee with a friend of mine that occasionally practices Aikido and a man walked past that had very good posture and I remarked upon it. She agreed and I, jokingly, said, "It's almost as good as mine." "Your's is different" she says "Different, how?" "Your's is more centered and he's just walking as if he has a purpose. Your's is menacing, when you walk into a place people look at you and they get worried." "I probably get that from Sensei." "No, he's more of a stealth assasin, you're getting that way but you're not there yet. He doesn't look menacing and imposing, you do. You look like you're about to amush someone."
