[QUOTE=Hiroaki Izumi
All right, you all are required to be here in Barbados next year for the Cricket World Cup 2007 finals! Then stay over for the Aikido. We will teach you about cricket with a Nikkyo pin!

Sounds great. I actually bowl a bit of wrist spin myself! I imagined that Caribbean aikicricket would be heavy on atemi, or throat ball as i think it's called in those parts.

Does anyone think that the esscence of sport, is one and the same as aikido? I am thinking of the ability of some sports players to make the games they play appear simple and effortless, usually by not doing things that would obstruct that end, rather than by actually doing more.
