Re: Aikido in the Park

Matthew

One summers evening several years back we took the mats outside to practice, there was a group of local yobs making Bruce Lee noises which we totally ignored, until two of them decided to run onto to the mat to the cheers of their fellow morons, two of my dan grades met them head on - not with Aiki love a cuddle and a do-nut - but with a positive irimi nage that just crashed them into the mat, they had to be carried off the mat.
Never had a problem since.
Enjoy your practice.
