Well we should enjoy our training. If you flick through O'Sensei's book Budo, you'll see he actually smiles whilst doing some techniques. However perhaps rolling on the floor clasping your stomach in fits of laughter is taking it a bit to far.
Really? It happens in the kid's classes all the time.
Wouldn't it be hilarious if one of the instructors at the Aikido Expo did an entire class of kid's games. 100 serious Aikido students laying on the ground laughing would be an awesome sight. Might shake the roots of the art, bring O'Sensei back from the grave and have Doshu on a plane to put a stop to it.
Kid's got this stuff figured out. It's the rest of us who take it too seriously.
