Re: You might be an Aikido addict if ....

OK I've done or am doing these very things, guess I'm an aikido addict -Kim

[quote=Jamie D. Ducusin]

You know you're a hardcore Aikidoka when:

- ...the Aikido dreams start.

- find yourself with an irresistible urge to
bow every time you enter or exit a room.

- feel like doing Yonkyo anytime someone
reaches to give you a handshake.

- no longer grip anything with your index

- You blurt out "Hai!" when you're asked to do something at home, or at work.

- You don't just open a door -- you extend into it from your center.

- Missing practice makes you feel like a caged animal.

- A crowded sidewalk always means tai sabaki practice.

- You've tried doing mai ukemi down a hill -- or on cement.
