Re: No more Mr. Nice Guy.

Poor me...I always seem to attract these types. I think it's because I am a big guy with a strong center and when you show me up You look really good! LOL No worries...Just smile and let them have thier fun with you. What goes around comes around

This one guy a very good Aikidoka spent a few years picking on me at seminars He thought it would establish him as the Alpha male on the mat. Over time the opportunity presented itself for me to show him what that really meant and after I put him on his back he just laughed at the realization of what his mindset had achived.

We have been good bros ever since.

Sensei Ledyard and Smith hit the nail on the head.

Budo is the ACT of not using the destructive ACTION even though you want to.

William Hazen Still a Nice Guy.
