thanks again Matt. Sorry but I found the other post offensive "to go drink a crate of beer". And what will that achieve exactly? I gave up drinking and I am proud of myself for doing so and then taking up a martial art to give me something positive to do. Which it did. I battled long against the demon of drink till I won but for a long time it won over me time and time again.
If you have this anger and tension - first you need to lighten up a bit, the comment from Joe was in jest and no way offensive. Joe offered you advice and dropped a bit of humour in the pot. I don't see that Aikido will be the answer to your problem, it will help to add some hard training into your routine to feed the anger, just lighten up.
