Pretty soon there won't be any around to kick our arses!
don't need them to kick our asses! I've been working on IS stuffs so I can kick my own ass. If my intent is focus enough and if I can relax my lower back enough and if I can prevent my shoulder muscles from tensing, I can send ground energy through my ass, by way of hara/dantien, and push it all the way up to my ears.
of course the easier way is to form an ass-kicking organization, where you come over to my place and kick my ass, then I'd come over to your place and kick your ass. we would call the organization as aikido ass-kicking organization with secret ass-kicking techniques such as how-to kick ass up through aiki-age or kick ass down through aiki-sage approaches. membership fees apply because we need folks to pay for the privilege of getting their asses kick.
