Mmmh, that IS interesting. O-Sensei was real short and had a long beard, while Yoda wasn't exactly a giant and he bore serious side burns...mmmh LOL!

Ok, just to stay in thread:

Re: Top 10 Reasons Why You Joined Aikido

So I practice hapkido... does that make me an evil Sith Lord?
Cool! You can call me Darth Tweekum. Can't wait till they teach to choke by telekinesis and shoot lightning.

2. Target shooting, motorcycles, and working at a prison just weren't exciting enough, I had to push the envelope and start running around in a skirt and pajamas.

Re: Top 10 Reasons Why You Joined Aikido

because defending yourselves with pain is more fun. especially because aikido doesnt leave things behind, only a bit red skin.
because my friends are giving me the nickname "the psychopate", and each they call me that people are looking

Because of the (very respectfully) wonderful babes of Aikido. There is something about a girl who could kick my @$$...

Re: Top 10 Reasons Why You Joined Aikido

'Cause we have Intro classes full of cute college guys, and when sensei calls me up and says "This is what you can do with a bit more experience" and tosses me around like a rag doll, I *love* the expressions on their faces. Hot damn.

Also because one of the cute college guys said, "You're a lot stronger than you look" and no one has *ever* said that to me before. (I didn't tell him I was moving from my center rather than using upper body strength. Why spoil the moment?)

It feels odd quoting myself. Anyhow, a few days ago I bumped into what I consider to be one sexy demonstration of Ryotetori-Ikkyo (and by this I mean no disrespect to Ms. Rachelle Nono). I just love how the side opening of her hakama is kinda revealing.

This is an animated gif, but it is also a smaller version. The larger size (and much clearer one) is at:

Cheers,

Re: Top 10 Reasons Why You Joined Aikido

because you felt like it...DUH!
But really, I just thought it looked cool...and my g/f thinks I look sexy in a gi...but that's a minor reason.

Classic!!!

Yoda Quote:
Luke:" Is the dark side stronger?"
Yoda: "No"

Hence: Aikido stronger than Hapkido!!!

Re: Top 10 Reasons Why You Joined Aikido

The SM studio was too expensive and I could not tell, when my family asked where I wanted to go.

Now aikido is cheaper, I can talk about freely, and the fun is the same

Re: Top 10 Reasons Why You Joined Aikido

If Mel Brooks did "Robin Hood - Men in Tights", do you think he might agree to do "Aikido - Men in Skirts"? I would volunteer for a role in the movie. Anyone else want to join me?
