Re: Top 10 Reasons Why You Joined Aikido

When I was young there were a lot of anti-war demonstrations - anti Vietnam war, later anti-Pershing (atomar mid-distance rockets for Germany).

They had good slogans. "Make love not war" was one and "Fighting for piece is like f***ing for virginity".

Then I saw the flyer about the "peaceful fighting art". I just thought "If there is a way to fight for piece, it might even help me on the other sight of the equation". And here I am.

Ahem - we re still in humor section, aren't we?
