Joe is a kind hearted Shihan who has lots of fun with us beginners. He has told people on this forum to take up knitting, which made me laugh or as Joe would say Chortle.
Hi Richard,
Thank God somebody has realised I like a laugh.I do not laugh at beginners .I prefer laughing with them and everyone.Sometimes I think we as aikidoka take the art and ourselves too seriously.Come on,its just a bit of fun. Dressing up in fancy togs, calling myself a Oriental title that means little in the real world.Compared to WayNe Rooney in sport I am the invisible man.Joe Curran Cellophane Man would be a better title.Wont my detractors [in their hundreds ] not pick up on this nickname?See I even make fun of myself.Who cares?? Life is too short .Lets just have a good time and try to be kind , considerate to each.Cheers, Joe

Dear John,
First thing first.Do not take me seriously.Next thing I like a guy who trys his best to do whatever he is doing be it body .weapons.Its not about be good or bad .What it is all about is how sincerely you apply
yourself and how you climb your own personal mountain.Keep doing what ou do, look for guys who are good role models and in time you will be fine.So John, a give you a fresh Trophy , one I call my Best Man Tryer of the Year Award. Ps get yourself a less heavy sword , you will improve your performance quicker /easier.Cheers, Joe.

Hi everyone, Joe... I have been invited to sit and watch another class, with the possibility of joining in the future, subject to the medical/psychiatric clearance. This is good news huh? John (Ninja/samurai/dad)

Hi Joe,

This is good news! I think as long as you take it as your duty as a warrior to follow your doctor's plan of therapy, as well as regular, committed practice on the mat, things can only get better for you. I personally can't really understand the challenges you are facing but if you believe in yourself and trust your doctors you can overcome any obstacle in your way.
