Thumbs up I know aikido so that makes me invincible, right?

WRONG !!

Aiki (Aikido) is the only marital (martial) art I've studied, and it will be all I need, provided I don't get cocky or reckless with it. To all those who think they are kami because they know kempo, jeet kune, or "death touch jutsu", I've got a little reminder for ya...My karma ran over your dogma, so open your mind before you buy or breed your next puppy. The inferiority / superiority complex is often very dangerous, as it leads only to one thing..loneliness (fear). So chiggity check yourselves before you wreck yourselves, aikido brothers and sisters. One of the greatest teachings of D. Hooker Sensei at one of his seminars in Tallahassee was a reminder that we must beware the "superiority attitude" of "I know AIKIDO!!!" lest our egos start writing checks our bodies can't cash....
