Re: Top 10 Reasons Why You Joined Aikido

Hey! It is poetry, depending on who's teaching.

I forgot what i was gonna say, it's a middle age thing. Now I remember. My reason's cheesy, but here goes.

I was icing a dislocated shoulder and decided to watch my buddy train aikido. I saw the local Sensei, now a Shihan, throw a hale looking fellow without touching him. I also knew that had the guy not moved he would have needed stitches (seen that too). Anyhoo, I knew I was seeing what I intuitively knew to be where my training would naturally go. Softer, softer, more efficient, so soft until -no need for contact.
