Last week I used Jo form to shovel snow. Aikido walking to push furniture around and a "joint-relaxation-sequence" form of "floating" to open those darn frozen car doors.

And because I have a swollen L-4 right now, I used stance changes to pick the dishes out of my dishwasher and place them in the cupboard 115 degrees away.

I put a rather sneaky nikkyo on a fella who wanted to give me a nipple twister in a pub :grr: Well I suppose he is only human and my nips are quite pinchable!

I also did a nifty irimi tenkan to avoid walking into someone carrying a try of coffees last week :)

I trashed a car while J walking once, the whirlwind effect from my turning was so severe, it made the weather charts.

does this count?

i open doors using irimi movement, crowded walkways means taisabaki practices. and i try to be aware of my surroundings. i have used forward rolls when i tripped and tenkan to avoid head on collisions

Ha. That's nothing. Why, since I started studying aikido, I realized that I've been using aikido movements all my life! I was even training in the womb! All of my life is aikido. Some of you say that your every moment is a training opportunity and every movement is a training movement -- hah! I get up at 3 in the morning, half an hour before I go to bed, and all day long, even the movements that I don't make are aikido movements! I make my coffee with iriimi! I rake the lawn with tenkan! And when I poop, I poop from my center!!!!!

More aiki than thou, so you might as well give up right now,

When one is full of aiki it just oozes out of the very pores even.
