Re: Aikido in 70 Words or Less

Paul and Nick-

Good job, that's more like it.
Obviously this is a tough question, and any answer will, of course, have many shortcomings. Aikido may be principally simple but this simplicity is certainly not easy to apply or understand. It seems that the real question comes down to how to describe Aikido simply, while minimizing ambiguity and error. Keep trying!

If people are curious about aikido, they will browse the web before coming.

Maybe just "Aikido courses - join us" + a nice picture.
Like an ad on TV : a few words + music + picture.
