Re: Why do we do it?
Onegaishimasu, my favorite reply to a couple of martial artists (tae kwondo, karate) who were discussing bar fights one night in a bar was this: "How long have you known me down in this bar?"
"Oh, 20, 25 years."
"Have you ever seen me get in a bar fight?"
"No, not once."
"Well, that's aikido..."
