Re: Aikido suffering identity problem?

I find that the following works: "Aikido is a Japanese martial aret which uses the attackers' strengh to throw or pin them". Either people are interested and I give them the times and place where we train or they shrugs and I leave it at that.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aikido has some more pointers that are useful.

The people who understand, understand prefectly.
