Re: Does Aikido make you smarter?

  • We spend money to have pain inflicted on us.
  • We then say thank you and ask to have it done on the other side.
  • We willingly subject ourselves to hours of physical, mental, and spiritual training that is often painful and almost always frustrating.
  • We think it's "neat" when we are choked unconcious or nearly so.
  • We think flipping end over end and hitting the floor with the velocity of a small comet also warrants the "neat" designation.
  • We (at least I) sit around poking ourselves to see if we can still find those pressure points we learned.
  • Deep down inside we get some sick pleasure from mat burns.

I think we're all idiots


"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
