Re: Say something about the Aikidoka below You!

False,

But I have broken someone else's bone - their toe, during a ki excercise...

The next person does not believe that ki excercises are all that dangerous.

It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations.

True. I've even said "gracias".

The next person nearly flew into a murderous rage when trying to fold their hakama for the first time.

False.

The next person has hidden in the back so as not to be called up for ukemi, because it was 95 degrees and very hot, and they were really tired!
