You might be an Aikido addict if ....
Is Aikido addictive? I believe it is. I had many justifications for returning to Aikido after 16 years, but at the end of the day, I resumed studying it because it got in my blood back in the '80s and that was it -- hooked now and forever.
Of course, unless you overtrain, Aikido is not as harmful as say sex, drugs, or gambling. But it is an addiction nonetheless. And so, as a public service, and with apologies to Jeff Foxworthy, here are some warning signs:
You might be an Aikido addict if .....
.... when Kali class is canceled, your first thought is to go to Aikido
.... when you go into a book store, you make a b-line of the martial arts section and flip through the Aikido books.
....you BUY an Aikido book, even though you already have more.
.... you make a point of doing so on vacation.
.... you start this thread on Aikiweb.
