had something happen to me tonight that after it happened I realized was directly a result of aikido training. I opened a door. Ok let me explaine here.

I was leaving the local 7-11 and the door, which was a push, was stuck. I started to strong arm it, something went click, I vaguely mentaly heard the word no and changed my movement, using my whole body (center leading even) to open the door. Ok no big thing but I found it rather startling. I mean, we dont exactly train to blend with doors.

So i got to wondering...who else has done something or had something happen to them that in thinking back their reactions were based on aikido, that had nothing to do with being attacked or maybe even involved another person?
