Looks like you've all been having fun. That's good. I suppose if you all did get it, did understand, I would be confused so I'm glad you don't.
Tim, I didn't say this is not teaching it's just for fun. You're getting as bad as some others. Ha,ha.
The 'expert' opinions given as to effectiveness shows me those who do so obviously don't understand. Why they are upset by me saying this I don't know as it's self evident. They understand what they do but not what I do. Very simple.
Harmless, ultra effective. An unusual combination.
I guess the point is, when is Aikido ever done for fun? Just do us a favor and post a actual "not for fun" Aikido class you conduct or participate in. I'm sure if we saw this, then maybe we could understand. You started practicing Aikido since 1981. How old were you when you started then? Thanks Graham and may God bless!
