You start a thread on Aikiweb without even knowing you did.

"Can I just say I didn't start this thread and I have no idea how it was started in my name...am a bit concerned about this. Obviously I need to go change my password in case someone has cracked it. Either that or I'm more of an akiaddict than I thought and was doing so in my sleep."

You see a child in a toy store swinging a plastic sword at a presumed sibling. You think "bad boy; no follow through".

... you note when a lock or throw you learn in Kali or Jun Fan looks like something in Aikido, but never the other way around.

You see fighters at a ren-fair and think, 'they're not training very realistically!'

Any building you are in that has a large area in it you think, "Gee this would make a great dojo.".

I have just moved into a new town and found 2 or 3 suitable locations for a dojo in the first day. Forget the unpacking, I have training to do.

Your kid has a birthday party at a gymnastics school and you are just dying to take ukemi on the very bouncy sprung floors!

Re: You might be an Aikido addict if ....

Your two year old nephew loves playing with his aunt as she lets him hit her over the head with a shomen strike. (Only he knows it as the bash bosh game)

And his is better than mine!

And he comes out with "I need a yellow belt like Ange" and he loves getting carried by his aunt when shes practicing her footwork.

(Ah I love my nephew, he is the only one who gets his aunties mad antics.)

Re: You might be an Aikido addict if ....

... when you are cold at home you don't turn on the heating or put on more clothes but do an aikido-style warm-up (and you say it's just because you are saving on the energy bill)

... you close your eyes after going to bed and see aikido techniques played in front of you

... sometimes you participate in these techniques as tori (but that needs much more concentration)

... you can't sleep because you suddenly remembered a good topic for your aikido blog and can't beat it out of your head until you have it completely 'written' in your mind (usually starts at 2am and finishes at 4am)

Re: You might be an Aikido addict if ....

... You move into an apartment above the dojo so you'll have a really short commute to class.
... You have class schedules for 10+ dojos on your smartphone, so you always know where to go on a "free" day.
... You'd never consider dating a fellow aikidoka because then you could never get any time away from them.

2. You can look at the various bruises on your hands, wrists, and forearms and name who caused each of them and which technique they were doing. And, you smile fondly as you think of each person even though they bruised you!

3. Your chiropractor begins each session with a deep sigh and, "You're still doing that aikido stuff, aren't you?"

6. Your gi gets washed 3 times more often than any other article of clothing in your wardrobe.

7. Someone asks why you are limping/not using an arm/hissing in pain when you bend over, and your story begins, "Oh, it was really great! In class yesterday, I finally got to try...."

8. Your friends don't even bother rolling their eyes or shaking their heads over the above anymore. They've given you over to aikido-addiction with no hope of return.

9. A good aikido class makes for a good mood for a day or two pretty much no matter what. A bad class, when you are mad at yourself and completely disgusted with your own ineptitude and mentally kicking yourself over being a completely useless idiot on the mats, makes for a cranky couple of days pretty much no matter what.

I'm an addict: the aikido dreams have begun!
welcome to my world!!!

Re: You might be an Aikido addict if ....

.....you discover that you can negotiate curves at higher speed if you yonkyo your steering wheel.

.....you discover while reviewing receipts for your tax return that a good number of your purchases were aikido (or iaido) related.

....you try to think of imaginative ways to deduct those purchases and get away with it.

....babysitting during aikido has its own line item on your budget, clocking in just shy of your car payment.

....you have to talk yourself out of using a sankyo to haul your screaming child out of the Walmart toy department.

...you wear a gi in your dreams occasionally, in situations unrelated to aikido.

...any time you get close enough to the ground you fold up in seiza.

...you wish your neighbors were a little less sensitive so you could practice breakfalls in your apartment.

Re: You might be an Aikido addict if ....

1) You don't settle things with rock-paper-scissors. Instead you use nikyo-sankyo-yonkyo...

2) Instead of taking your date home to meet your parents, you take her (or him!) to meet Sensei...

3) You take a header over the handlebars of your bicycle and four successive forward rolls save you from getting road rash...

4) You want to try Number 3 again....

5) You step forward, turn tenkan, pivot and step forward in your kitchen while coffee is brewing...
