"Aikido=MC2" (http://www.badassbumperstickers.com)

- That is, "Aikido equals M(mass) times C(speed of light) squared"
On the bumper sticker, the "2" is written as an exponent, just like in Einstein's famous relativity formula.

Any other ideas??
Is there an aikido bumper sticker you've always wanted but could never find, or one you saw once but could never get one?
Let me know and I'll make it for you.

Let me know it you want the font size even smaller, like, teeny tiny.

Since you're in Germany, I could do one that says,
"Wenn sie dieses lesen kann, gibt es etwas mit dein maai los."
or however you prefer to phrase it.

To get one, click on this link HERE (http://www.badassbumperstickers.com)
Then click where it says "Requested Designs."

I'm not sure how many can fit on a bumper.
Of course, I've seen people cover the entire back of their car in stickers. Maybe try just two or three to start and if you come up with any more ideas you can add them.

Have fun!
Thanks

Lol, not really sure.
Folks have speculated on many possibilities, or that it might not even be "real."
I happened upon it somewhere in cyberspace years ago and just recently rediscovered it in an old folder on my hard drive.

I thought, "that poor fellow looks almost as bad as I felt my first few months of class."

I wouldn't be able to tell if it was faked or not, but I've seen real pictures of dog attacks and they weren't pretty either, so that had the possibility of being real.

Aikidoka do it in harmony.

Aikidoka do it with a strong irimi.

My personal favorite was a car I spotted that had two bumper stickers.
On the left side was "Aikido" and to the right they had "Nothing Works."

"I 'break'fall for Aikido." or just " I break for Aikido."

All great suggestions so far.
I'm looking forward to designing some of the ones for parents with aikido kids and "Shi-Honage Happens" is excellent.
To order any of these, click HERE (http://www.badassbumperstickers.com)

I'll have more time to work on them this weekend since our sensei is going to a seminar in Chicago and we won't have class Friday.

Thanks

How about: "Aikido: Because peace kicks ***". :)

I was looking in a dictionary for words that start with do, so I could get aiki(insert word here) ideas. The do-words I thought may have potential are

aikiDolemite (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolemite) - umm, ok, maybe not

aikidose - take your medicine on the mat!

aikidot - keep the one-point

There are also various animals that start with do: aikidodo, aikidoe, aikidog, aikidormouse, aikidory, aikidove. Not much to choose from; maybe dove is the best.

To get really juvenille about it, aikidOWNED!, is always a nice touch. :)

Mother's Day is the fourteenth.

I tried something new.
Normally I only do bumper stickers, but CafePress can put a design on just about anything.
I tried putting a design that says "AikiMom" on a bunch of different things like coffee mugs, shirts, mousepads, etc.

See if there's anything you like.

'You'd be surprised at how much aikido philosophy you can pick up on at the end of the party when there's just a couple drunk sempai and you.'

Thats so true, the same can be said for when it is just you and your equally drunk sensei, sitting in his back garden drinking red wine and smoking cigars, ah, happy times.

Anyway, I put the "Ma-Ai" bumper sticker back on the site and will leave it there for a couple weeks for anyone who wants one.

Thanks, have fun.
