Thanks for the comments Bruno.... it seems aikido is one thing I'm a bit of an exhibitionist in.
(Then why did it take 2 years of debate to post it?)

I like showing off, much to the dismay of some of my teachers. I think demonstrations are where you find out what you really own of Aikido (if its possible to own anything in Aikido?). and its fun!!!! I like the rush. Some people I train with don't.

One of my teachers has said that we the students best when we are teaching or working with beginners (paraphrased). Keeps you in check better, I guess?
