in aikido there is a lot of emphasis on hip movement and using a strong and 3-dimensional hip. Do you think this makes us aikidoka better lovers?

happiness. harmony. compassion.

Cool

Relax, take a deep breath and do a tenkan. Get off the line and blend. Jeez! Folks are so sensitive and so easily offended these days. Now let me spin out of here.

Okay then, would you kindly explain what you _really_ did have in mind, because yours truly is at a loss ?

Thank you.

No way (I actually said 'Way' - and it felt good). Most are too short-tempered.

I don't see what this has to do with "security" or lack thereof.

Perhaps vulgar was a somewhat rough translation.

Forgive me, English is my second language

I think "stupid" would be a closer match to what I had in mind.

I think you've got an insulting tone here. I don't know if you _really_ wanted that. What the hell,though- your reply has made me laugh out loud.

OK DiNalt,

Please, tell us again just what it is you found "vulgar/stupid" about shadows question........?

You seem to be hitting both sides of the fence here. Hey, if you live in a glass house......jeeez!!

I think it can be counter-productive; as you get better at aikido you are more able to do the techniques in one quick and dynamic movement.

Also, focus on the one-point generally leads to tedium; though maybe good extension can be of help.

Ian

P.S. as far as I know 'Aiki' does also refer to love-making.

That's a humorous reference to the movie which is currently in the theaters.

What was that about the glass house, again ?

and by picking that quote what does it say about you? and what does that say to others about you? It merely shows what you think is humorous, same with the question "aikidoka as better lovers"
You are evaluated by you words online as your actions are unseen by most in cyberspace, so choose them wisely they may reveal too much.

still throwing stones
still living in the glass house
still not caring

Dan Hover

of course that's my opinion, I could be wrong

That quote is actually also a part of a running joke in that thread, where people made the last part of their post to look like a mock-up of a personal ad.

Yes, I think mine is funny, and I'm not alone, too.

As for the creator of this thread, shadow, he asked the readers, what do they think ?

I told him what I think.

That's not a universal opinion, I don't deny that others may think differently, but I expressed my, personal, opinion.

And no-one is denied the right to think whatever they want about *my* joke, as well.

As for your vague references to "revealing too much", I don't know where you're going with this, I don't know whether you know that yourself, but in any case, combined with that repeating ending, you're starting to freak me out.

Would you like to check my garage for corpses, or something ?

Gee-zus !

DiNalt,

I'm not going to get into a quote war with you. I understand English is not your native language so, in case you truly do not understand my comment about the glass house, I'll try to break it down for you. Stay with me here.

Shadow has humor.
DiNalt has humor.
Shadow expresses humor.
DiNalt throws rocks at shadows humor although DiNalt has same humor he throws rocks at.

Thus the term glass house and throwing rocks...... please let me know if you still need assistance understanding this.....

Regards,
Dan P. - Mongo

Dear Dan,

I am perfectly aware of the "Don't throw rocks if you're living in a glass house" proverb.

However, the fact whether my sense of humor is the same as shadow's , is a matter of opinion.

In your opinion, it is, and I'm throwing rocks while living in a glass house.

In my opinion, our "jokes" were sufficiently different, and I'm not living in a glass house, plus I still think the original post was stupid.

This is my opinion which I'm entitled to express, especially considering that the poster's intent was to get feedback.

Which I gave to him.

If you need any assistance understanding that... well... go ask someone else.

I give up.

Smile shadow is on to something

I'm just mad I didn't think of this first. I'm going to be a strong proponent of 'aikido makes better lovers' and won't hesitate to let my dates know that I am a practitioner of aikido and a firm believer in that statement.

And if my Russian friend from school ever returns home (aleksey you are living in Russia right?) I'll make sure to have him go check that garage for corpses!!

Yes, I live in Russia, I drink vodka everyday, and every other day I march on the Red Square, wearing extremely thick clothing, as the neverending snow keeps falling down on the ground... and on my garage...

Aikido helps enhance my capacity to love people.
I haven't been attending for a month.

Can you tell ?

Aikidoka as better lovers?

Perhaps the reverse is true: good lovers make better Aikidoka, especially since the more relaxed you are,the better.

Actually, smart guy, I've spent time in Mother Russia. This particular combination (excluding the plants) was consumed semi-regularly while I was there and I actually thought it was fairly decent. It seemed to take the edge off the vodka. I've never seen it done here though.
