People are prejudiced, what can you say.

(All except me obviously).

Re kids: They can be very aiki completly untutured. Certainly when it comes to rolling around, blending and grabbing each other. The only strike they seem to use naturally is shomen uchi with a closed fist, and kicks are normally to the shins.

Have noticed that judo people seem as nice as aikidoka despite the lack of emphasis on spirituality.

Would say a few judo classes would be an eye opener for most aikido bunnies.
