Hmmm. Elitism, a social hierarchy, top dog and alpha male. All terms I've heard and hold very dear to my heart
It would be very easy to think grade or rank makes you able to tell a person they are excluded from the dojo. But it takes more than 20 mins in front of a group of people to find out who you are and what you want from Aikido as I have found out.
Its easy for people to pick apart something you put on a forum like this. But at the end of the day its not what you say but the idea you have the right to say it that is important.
As for getting at someone, WHY would I wish to do this. I have all I need in my life on and off the mat and can only wish the same for everyone who has posted on this thread. Now I feel I should tell Nick off for last weeks class
( only kidding bud it was one of the best classes I've been to for a long time. Look out world here comes Sensei Simpson)
