Re: When your family resents Aikido

Sad Aikidoka,
You need to calm down. I get this almost every time I go training from both my wife and my two daughters- mostly from my wife though and I'm going on my 5th year. As long as you don't forget your responsibilities at home as this is the most important one, they should come to realize that you need some time for your self. I don't know about you but in our house, when the queen is not happy---no body is happy ;-)
I think that if you drastically change your life style so much so that it throws-off the rest of the family, the family won't like it. So just keep it calm and get a grip of the situation and hopefully you'll get the right balance between your family and your training.

Hey, if you get good enough to do multiple attacks, let them see what you can do, may be they will realize that it is not good to piss you off :-)

Plus Ki
