Re: Aikido suffering identity problem?

Explain is different from advertise. I just say its sort of like Judo.

If pressed I say we tend to do more joint locks.

If pressed I show then sankyo.

If pressed I order another beer and tell them about our dojo. I find at this point I have another potential victim, I mean student. I don't even go into technical details just describe where the students come from and how the training usually proceeds. I guess at this point it becomes advertisement.
