Re: What is "Aikido"?

David, interesting though totally tangential to the discussion. I've learnt to walk quite happily along a line narrower than the width of my foot while rolling my head around the sky in circles quite rapidly. Dancers/gymnasts/figure skaters/etc do the same thing while spinning incredibly quickly, showing that their balance can equally be felt along their centerline. Your example says much about the subjects and their lack of sophistication in the art of balance.
