is aikido in the work place wrong?

hi guys ...
knowing my evil ways you may have noticed that i only poke the patients! ...
as a moral question ... would it be totally worng for me to practise a small amount of aikido on the patients?
you know ...
a little light nikkyo here ...
a sankyo there ...
and pretend im helping them with physio??
would that be so wrong??? WOULD IT???
i mean I already practice bokken work with the porter ....
....
(ok ... we play starwars with mops) ...
but could I not just be VERY careful???

Dance your cares away .... worry for another day ... let the music play .... down in fraggle rock!

when bored ... do as I do. Poke a patient!

I thought that was only for the really big ones.

And.. I think it's ok to practice at work, if you first yell something like "He's heading right for me!" and claim you were attacked first. Just remember to properly dispose of all witnesses.

Re: is aikido in the work place wrong?

don't you have a dpt of autopsy?
go there, and try every technique, you would also have the chance to try the limits of nikkyo or sankyo...and you could find out how long you can pin uke!!! in ikkyo or yonkyo until you get bored

If riga mortis has set in, you can practice on a 'fully resistant' uke

Thanks for reminding the good people on the web that it's true that 'all the nuts roll down to Florida'.

Emma - thanks for asking a question whose answers proved to me there are sicker minds than mine out there!!!

Is Emma Mason a physical therapist, a pain management specialist or maybe activities director?

Dude, you have no idea.

Emma is not one to be trifled with; she trifles back.

If I ever get the chance to go to the UK,

Ill be sure to add being admitted to your hospital in my itinerary... I would soooooooooo love to be your patient!

hmmm... that made me think.... "Get admitted now, and get a free session in Aikido!" more hospitals should have this!

Better train harder Emma. It looks like your future patients may be able to fight back.
