You visit Aikiweb daily for 7 years without attending a single class, and start again at the new city after dragging the gis, hakama, bookend, jo, and katana across Canada twice

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

you travel 60 miles to get training at another dojo even though there's one in your home town. (Not me but someone I know who gave me permission to post this.)

...you created this thread and marvel at its longevity, even if it hasn't been added to in months.

...you can't risk doing the odd roll on the tatami floor your Jeet Kune Do instructor set up for BJJ classes.

You might be an Aikido addict if you are the only one who shows up.

I meant "resist," but I can't edit it.

I remember after I had learned to do ukemi rolls and falls without fear standing at the end of a grocery store aisle and feeling a strong desire to roll the length of the aisle.

Go ahead, tread on me.

Did you actually do ukemi rolls in the grocery store aisle? Did anyone see you do it?

I was only brave enough to attempt rolls on the school's hard tiled floors.
