Re: upcoming movie featuring aikido...

Great idea! However, what we don't need is another kick-butt female Steven Seagal clone demonstrating how to use the "Art of Peace" to maim and cripple.
What made the "Karate Kid" movies popular was not the fighting but the story about the transformation of Daniel through the guidance of a wise and experienced Sensei who had humor and compassion. " THAT" we Aikidoka can all relate to from our own experiece.
Two years ago I was challenged by a great master of the martial arts who said I need to stop looking for Mr. Miyagi to teach me but to become Mr. Miyagi to help others to learn the Way of Peace.
