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

So, these were made by my friend (who is black belt testing in may)

If this conversation ever happens; "Hunny, I love you" As you throw Kotegaeshi with an air fall then pin him "Yeah, sure ya do!" He says as he taps out furiously

you may be an aikido addict if...... you get pissed and imagine all of the possible moves you could throw on the jerk who made you mad.

After you have been creamed by someone you train more to figure out how to counter what happened last time

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

If you are disappointed that the home town team made the Super Bowl because it means class is canceled for the night, so you find another dojo in town that has a morning class that is still on, and decide to go to that... and you're the first person to arrive and start setting up the mats before any of their regular members show up....

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

you might be an aikido addict if you consider a week long course to be your summer holiday
you're definitely an aikido addict if you and your partner pick up the torch and organise said course when the original organiser let the group down

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

You might be an aikido addict if, after the last practice of a weeklong seminar, you are going to your car and you are unexpectedly confronted by all your family and friends telling you they are there for an intervention. Before they can start telling you how you've been in denial about your addiction you let out, "EEYYHHH!!", and "Taninzu-Gake, Randori, Let's Do It!!"

You get pulled over by a police officer and when he lets you leave without a ticket he says "Please drive safer." and your reply is "Hai."

He didn't look at me too strangly.....

Your family runs away on sight to avoid hearing the words "now, let me try just one thing..."

I get that one all the time!!

When your friends know who all is at the dojo, what rank they are, who is testing, when you are at class, and they no all your techniques by name.

If your co-workers threaten one one another by saying, "don't make me, make you, grab Cherie's wrist.

If planning an overseas business trip, the first thing you do is look up a dojo that's nearest your point of destination.

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

You tell yourself you don't need to train today, you've trained plenty this week, everybody needs a day off now and again, and you're not going to train today.

And half an hour later you find yourself training.

You wonder why everyone is waving to do you while are driving .. then you find out you have been unintentionally doing Kokyu hand movements when you rest your hand out the window of your car while driving!!! LOL

Your sole reason for joining a shared smallholding/city farm is that O-Sensei seemed to think highly of farming. The rest of the co-operative looked rather confused when I tried to explain...

I am guilty of the same thing, and that includes pleasure trips as well!

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

Well if your teacher acompanied by another student comes to say "hello" where you work and you find your self joking about starting a randori, you are certainly an aikido addict. Now if you wake up one day and you realise that even though the years have passed you still have a ponnytail, you dress in black shirts and leather overcoats and hate Van Damme, then you are an aikido junkie. Wait a minute! Come to think of it...Oh my!! I'm an aikido junkie!

You get hinted about joining AA,
that is, the Aikiholics Anonymous group on Facebook.
http://www.facebook.com/groups/2212181260

You do so eagerly, but only after first checking they wouldn't try to cure you...

You slip and fall on a wet floor at work and you are happy about it because your ukemi was really nice...
