Re: Aiki Redneck

If your sensei hands you a bokken and says, "Try to whack me with this pig-sticker.", he might be an aiki-redneck.

Re: Aiki Redneck

If hearing Shania Twain sing makes you think of shenai, or if you think a tanto is the Lone Ranger's sidekick, you might be an aiki-redneck.

LOL! A dojo friend of mine actually said he wanted to do this!!!! That was a couple years ago, though, and he hasn't. Yet.

Re: Aiki Redneck

if you pick your teeth with your tanto and clean yours toes with your bokken


if the start of your jo kata consists of you leaning against the jo while chewing tobacco (the ki -ai for this is "you ain't from round here are you boy?")

if there is a spitoon at the side of the tatami

Well we had a pretty full mat that night and it was time to do some bokken work. With everyone using there own or one of the dojos we ended up being one short...A young lady pipes in "I have an extra in my car" she runs out and comes back with a bokken held together with duct tape. You could see more duct tape then you could wood...

I put my right foot in, I put my left foot out, I do the Aikipokey and throw you all about

And what is wrong with duct tape? It comes in several pretty colors, including red.

Re: Aiki Redneck

if everyone at your dojo wears mullets......

sorry, I used to practice at a certain dojo in the backwoods of NW Florida, so I'm full of 'em. Nicest people in the world. Real southern hospitality. They even taught my Japanese wife how to say things like " I reckon we oughtta do ikiyo um-hmmmm".

Re: Aiki Redneck

If the directions to you dojo include phrases like, up the road a spell, across da crick and down in the hallor by the red barn under the oak tree.

The refreshments is shine from a milk jug.

This continuing reference is too good to pass up:


If your duck blind is made from old hakamas, with the worn out knees used as pee(p)holes ... ...

If you use your shoto as a duck skewer over the fire each night ...

If you hunt ducks by pulling strips off a roll of real LOUD ducktape as your duck call...

(How do you think it got its name, after all...)

Re: Aiki Redneck

If half your training equipment is made from old tires (although, I do know of a very nice - and serious - dojo near me that uses an old tire as "target practice" for sword work which I actually think is kind of brilliant).

If the other half is made from tractor parts.

If the willa bark is peeling off your joe.

Re: Aiki Redneck

If randori begins with "Let's git it on!"...

If you wear your jeans under your hak...

If there's a "Aikidoka do it on the mat" sticker or a "Shihonage Happens" sticker on your truck bumper...

If you whittled your own jo...

If you call off class when the dojo runs out of beer...

If you've ever looked up the katakana for "Billy Bob"...

If your obi is a rope with black shoe polish...

If you train with your wife and your sister, and there's still only two of you...

If your last seminar was at a Waffle House...
