Aikido... The practical Art

Ok ok.. I know this has been thrown out 100000 times.. but I think the story I'm about to tell is pretty freaking funny...

A few days ago, I was in my cubicle watching aikido videos from youtube while on break (of course). When a co-worker walks up and says "I don't see why you take that art it's easy to tell it's all staged." I've already had this conversation a few times with this guy and didn't feel like dealing with it again. So I simply said "Dude, I'm not asking you take it now go away so I enjoy the rest of my break."

As he backed out of my cube he tripped on my umbrella and popped his head on the floor. Not being able to resist I turned around and said "Now if you had taken aikido you would have done Ushiro Ukemi, either a backwards roll or backwards fall of some sort and you wouldn't have a headache right now. Hmmm Aikido IS a practical art" The look on his face was priceless

Ok now back to the real threads

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