Interesting. I don't think I would call myself an "aikidoka" since, to me, the -ka suffix lends itself to the meaning that aikido is the crux of my being (including financial). The -ka suffix to me connotes its prefix to be the person's profession...

If I were asked in Japanese about my aikido practice, I wouldn't reply that I was an "aikidoka" but that I do aikido ("Aikido wo shite imasu.")
