Re: Advertising for your local dojo!

We printed 2 t-shirts this year.

The first said: "If you can read this, you are within my range of effectiveness" with our logo on the back.

The Second: "Three taps makes the pain go away" with beer glasses with our 3 dojo logos on the back.

Re: Advertising for your local dojo!

Yes, you do, Karen. Of course you do. Just remember, you deserve the shirt, you earned the shirt and it's in your best interests to have the shirt.

Re: Advertising for your local dojo!

Hi Krystyna,

now I know where you got the ideas for your t-shirts. I've seen them, folks, they look great!

Did you enjoy the course?

Re: Advertising for your local dojo!

Hi Krystyna,

fine, thanks. All the aches and bruises have gone by now.

I'll do the inscription for next years course this week. Promised! See if you can come over for the Christkindl course, too.... Ask Chris for information.

See, that's how we do advertising for our courses.....

Keep on training,

Simone

aikido, a martial art for the lazy....
the less you need to move, the better you are!

or for noobies: Grab me .... no not like that,like this, no, no, you have to let me!!!

I don't think that's a good advert though really is it?

Re: Advertising for your local dojo!

not strictly speaking an aikido quote but it fits, and it amuses me
"do you know how to fly?"
"no, but i took a crash course."

Re: Advertising for your local dojo!

On our cub hoodies, on the back it has a picture of two aikidoka; one is getting flipped.

Beneath it says

"Aikido: The gentle art of people folding"

Someone's sig file in a forum uses
"Aikido: A kinder, gentler can of whoop ass."

peace and love

Jo
