Re: Top Ten Reasons you STAY with Aikido

I stay w/ aikido because...
1) it's a great way to travel, even if it's just in rolls around the mat.
1) My dojo mates actualy miss me if I don't show for a while.
3) Everyone looks great in a hakama!
4) Our dojo's allow for any coloured hakama, so our photos look spectacular and I now have a deep royal purple one!
5) we have such a large percentage of women that one of the best compliments one can hear is "you fight like a girl."

When I dare to be powerful - to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid. --Audre Lorde
