There are alot of things that people not doing Aikido don't understand about Aikido. There are some that aren't interested and give you dumb looks, some who are intrigued and give it a try and some with little or no experience that are self proclaimed experts on parts or all of Aikido. Only those who are practicing or have experience will understand what you are talking about. It is all about the practice on the mat.
