Re: New Steven Segal TV Series - Lawman
All this talk about a surge in interest in aikido resultant from Steven Seagal's new TV show, "Lawman," and/or the fantasy of a future reality show pairing up a Jefferson County deputy sheriff w/ a bounty hunter ...
Hmmm ... Begs the questions:
1) "Do we need a TV show or movie actor to spur interest in aikido?"
2) "What (if anything) do dojo members do to advertise or recruit new students?"
3) "Have others experimented w/ new media (facebook, twitter, etc) to attract the next generation aikidoka?"
... Of course word of mouth advertising and a personal invite to visit one's home dojo is best. Just interested in hearing other opinions.
