tony would that be 'traditionalists' or 'traditionalers?'
i kid :P

anyways, i've been told the same, that 'aikido-ka' can be used for someone who does aikido 'professionally,' i think that was the term used. because many of us don't 'make a living' with aikido, we wouldn't be referred to as 'aikido-ka'

but i agree with the other folks... when asked, i say 'i do aikido'

practice hard
