Absolutely!

I reckon O Sensei must have had a sense of humour, as that comes through in most people's Aikido (not just Yonkyo ), making it a lot of fun to train in Aikido.

At a recent seminar I was chatting to the nice Red Cross ladies (who kindly provided ice for my swollen foot), and they told me that they'd run the First Aid station at a number of MA events, and that of all of them, the Aikido ones seem to have the greatest number of students smiling, laughing and really enjoying themselves.
