Aw, thanks.

Yeh, I got stung about 100 times doing orienteering once because I swotted one on my body. I got completely swarmed! Just to sound even more pompous than Matt; there are many types of wasps, but they are usually parasitic - they inject the eggs of their young into other insects and the young hatch and eat the insects from the inside out - nice. What can aikido do about that type of attack!? eh? eh?
Prepare us for the pain. See "Angry White Pyjamas."

- Bridget, is this swatting wasps without damaging lampshades thing a new method of training?
What do you think O'Sensei was doing when he was swinging a bokken around. Get enough accuracy with that thing and wasps become a thing of the past and your lampshades are never touched.
