Re: Have you actually used Aikido?

I just lost my footing on black ice today. Didn't even have to take a breakfall or roll (which I've done in the past) - I kept perfect posture, very slowly sliding forward while sinking, keeping my center in the middle, then drawing my back foot up as I rose to full standing. The friend I"d been waving to was quite impressed. I smiled and said "years of aikido..."
