Re: Limerick challenge!

I didn't mean to imply in my previous post that our dojo condones violent training in any way... So here's another perspective on our Sensei:

There was a sensei in Northwest D.C.
With an exceptional command of ki;
When he was away
His spirit would stay
And scold students invisibly.

Hmmmm, somehow I don't think this fully reflects the atmosphere of loving kindness which really pervades our dojo...

Also, some of our senior black belts have just become more senior than previously:

A wise aikidoka named Larry
To Okinawa went, testing his merit;
He returned from Japan
With a second dan,
For his aiki was exemplary.

Larry doesn't read these forums, AFAIK, but I just wanted to share, because he's the coolest sempai ever. Also, he leads a killer warm-up!
