True!

The next aikidoka spent more than 15 minutes trying to think of something clever to say after "the next aikidoka...."

The person above me broke the chain by not saying something about the person below them.

You're right! And I started this thread! Tried to go back and edit it, but I couldn't. Thanks for the heads up. Now, back on track:

The person below me wears long johns under their gi in the winter time.

Re: Say something about the Aikidoka below You!

true!! first- person shooter games especially (wearing the obligatory long-johns, of course)

The next person thinks that the kids-in-gi's are about the cutest little buggers running about....(you aught to see my grandson...here let me show you some pictures*reaching for wallet as you sidle away)
Lan
Editors note - Lan suffers from boredom with the prescribed forms of the game and thus doesn't work or play well with others. Please excuse him.

Re: Say something about the Aikidoka below You!

False - I eat at least 2 -3 hours before class so that my food can digest.

The person below me doesn't eat before class and keeps thinking about food during class.

Re: Say something about the Aikidoka below You!

False! Just half as many.

The next person writes down notes about who they trained with and for which techniques after seminars.

Re: Say something about the Aikidoka below You!

Mostly false I've tried a few times, but I'm usually too exhausted. Something I need to work on.

The next person believes that an Imperial IPA is the best post-practice beverage.

Re: Say something about the Aikidoka below You!

False. I don't drink, so I don't know what that is.

The next person can not mop the floor for longer than ten seconds without lapsing into jo technique.

Re: Say something about the Aikidoka below You!

This is true.

The next person thinks gi pants are the most comfortable pants they own and therefore tends to wear them to the store and at home.

Re: Say something about the Aikidoka below You!

False. They're so uncomfortable I cut all mine off just below the knee.

The next person thinks Aikido training goals are are unique to each individual and should be honored as such.

Re: Say something about the Aikidoka below You!

Somewhat true ... I treat uke like I want to be treated

The person below has endured a fair amount of pain at the hands of a teacher for the benefit of a fellow student.
