I happened in on a kid's class not too long ago and I was struck by the fact that these lads were all laying on the ground, feet up in the air and giggling non-stop. They were obviously having a great time and doing something related to Aikido.
It immediately dawned on me that the adult classes are much more sedate virtually everywhere I visit. As adults we are TRAINING, or we are WORKING on something, or we are getting READY FOR SOMETHING. The kids just play and have a great time. We are SERIOUS.
I think there is a disconnect somewhere around here.
How often do you wind up on the floor in a giggle fit?
