Top 10 Reasons Why You Joined Aikido
 
Hello gang!

Here's another idea for a top 10 list:

Top 10 Reasons Why You Joined Aikido.

10.- You always wanted to beat someone up in a peaceful manner.
9.- You're girlfriend asked you to be one with her, so you thought that you might as well be one with the universe.
8.- You thought that MMA were too girly.

Ok guys, keep'em coming... ;)

Becuase they go round in gangs were i live and attack you for the fun of it, so my reason is because i like breathing, yes i could run away from it but, then all the other gangs join in, there like wolve's round here, see something running and they got to chase it.

5. 'Cause I've always wanted to wear chaps, and my sensei told me that hakama are just the Japanese version.

...joining Aikido was more socially acceptable than becoming an axe murderer :crazy: :)

I know 1 or 2 who I'm sure started it because they secretly (or not so secretly) wanted to be Jedi when they grew up...

Hey Drew,

Think on it from the bright side, your company can save on the security bills... and that will be favourable to the said company bottom-line which in effect will be good for your year end bonus, ain't it? :p

Boon.

Oh, I assumed that the year-end bonus would be "not getting yonkajo'ed at the Christmas party".

...because beating each other up on the mat is cheaper than couple´s therapy ;-) (I started with my husband).

Who's talking about when they grew up? ;) Oh...wait... I haven't grown up yet -- well, not literally that is. ;)

  • its cheaper than medication
  • its a bit more energetic than darts
  • it gives me something to bore the pants off people with at parties
  • I also failed the ninja entrance test (couldn't find the damn door)

'Cause aerobics is boring, and I look better in baggy clothes anyway. :D

Actually I took one aerobics class last year, in exchange for a friend taking an aikido class with me. The only sports clothes I own are my keikogi, so I wore the pants and a t-shirt...looked kinda odd between all the skinny leotards. :) The friend btw loved our warm ups and found the throwing each other part boring, how odd is that???
