Donuts aren't "Aiki" either, but where would my day be without them?
blaspheme! donuts are aiki, you heathen! it contains triangle, circle and square! it's holly aiki!

To the people who think that all definitions of "Aiki" out to be accepted, that it's all good, what if I said something like "I was walking down the street and I turned to a teenager who was annoying me, kicked him in the nuts and broke both his arms, what wonderful Aiki!". Wouldn't you feel obligated to say something?
ya, why would you break his arms? what he would he use to hold his nuts while rolling on the ground screaming? nuts and legs are ok, in combo, but not arms! where are your manner?
