Re: No more Mr. Nice Guy.

"When in Winnipeg, do as the Winnipegers do." Doesn't have the same classic ring to it. "Winnipegers" just sounds kinda' silly.

I am still as polite and accommodating as ever (at least I like to think so) and run a pretty relaxed class but perhaps I am more capable of projecting the limitations of patience.
Well, as I've said, I think I have not expressed the limitations of my patience very well. I guess this is sort of my point. I haven't had good balance about this and am realizing it now more than I have in the past.

"School marm look of death"? Do I need half glasses and my hair in a bun for this one?

In the other hand, if aikido should lead you to create the rightest response spontanously, I'm a bit surprised after 20 years you have some doubts how to react in such simple situation.
Oh, I can adapt my aikido on the fly pretty well now. The problem is that sometimes I'm a little too polite to do it.
