Talking Aikido's True Purpose

I have finally discovered the ultimate purpose of Aikido and here are the videos

Re: Aikido's True Purpose

well... this just proves it. Not only is Aikido effective on the street... its also effective in the bar.

Too funny thanks for sharing.

Re: Aikido's True Purpose

Clearly I need to move to Sweden so that I can learn from the great shihans of biiru-waza

Jason, these are great. Thank you. I believe it essential to combine occasional silliness with serious Aikido, and most of us know when it's time to get serious. I thought it was "biru" not "biiru." Does someone know the proper Romaji? My favorite seminars and everyday keiko have included moments of relaxed fun to keep me from feeling way too hardcore.

Not Aikido, but some vodka waza plus Santas kicking butt!

My Japanese isn't great, but if I'm not mistaken "biru" means building, but "biiru" means beer...

Be willing to give up all that you now are, to be all that you can become.
