THAT's it, Lynn...the marketing we need to restore Aikido to its rightful place in popular culture...miniature dojo courses. I can see it now....
First "hole"....shikko into a teeny one room tea house beautifully designed and painted, just maybe a little on the garish side....nikkyo the evil chado teacher....
Second "hole"... forward roll into a tiny and very lovely, but maybe a little on the garish side, garden....do a disarm when the evil ikebana expert suddenly pulls out the little okubo shears....
