I was watching a show on public television a few days ago, and it made me wonder - - who would have been "better" at Aikido - Fred Astaire or Gene Kelly?

In younger days, I would have said Kelly, for his athleticism, but thinking about Astaire's grace, and ability to follow his partner (maybe the question should really be Astaire vs. Kelly vs. Ginger Rogers!), I am not so sure I know the answer - - Who would you rather have had as a teacher? (I think Astaire without a doubt)

Intelligent people recognize that the only answer to this question is John Kerry.

Say goodbye to this thread! :D

Is Ginger often quoted as having said:
"Every step that Fred danced, I did backwards wearing high heels."
Her ukemi certainly would've been better than Fred's. :)

Get out of here, all of you. If cartoon superheroes are the way its going to be, there's absolutely no question about it, it has to be Dangermouse.
