A post I put up on a different board...thought it was worth cross-posting.


A humorous curiousity: as you may know, Amazon.com generates "SIPs" or "Statistically Improbable Phrases" - basically, phrases peculiar to a certain book, which often give a good idea of its content.

In other words, obviously, a perfect way to find the secret to aikido. So let's take a classic and comprehensive tome...say...Shioda-sensei's "Total Aikido"...and feed it into the machine here.....

The first results:
*right tegatana
*large turning movement
*left tegatana
*uke grasps
*unbalance uke
*own center line

...whoa. I think Amazon.com knows aikido now.
