Aikido Holiday Present

Hi folks,

So, if you could receive one aikido-related holiday present, what would it be?

Re: Aikido Holiday Present

I wish our dojo didn't close for a holiday break. An open dojo would be the greatest Aikido-present for me.

Going two weeks without Aikido is torture for me. Especially with all of the holiday sweets I've eaten, I need the exercise!

I would want nothing. No ego, no thinking, no fear, no anticipation, no distraction.

reality - A class with Nakao sensei.

dream - a class with Yamaguchi sensei

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"

Re: Aikido Holiday Present

I realise I'm a little late but I would like a Festivus Pole, except I want it to be made of wood (preferably white oak) rather than aluminium and I'd like it to be around four feet in length. Cheers.

Re: Aikido Holiday Present

My Mum brought me a new dogi with my name embroidered on the sleeve which is great and my Dad got me a Hanwei Miniature Katana which has pride of place on my bookcase (I wonder if it will be subject to the upcoming ban!?!).

Vorsprung durch Aikido!

Re: Aikido Holiday Present

Y'all are pikers. I'd wish for five new dogi! And, yeah, more time to train.
