call every news station in the world and start a frenzied bidding war for the rights to an interview (with both you and the hakama they have to pay double) then spend your new found wealth on a string of exorsists armed with holy irons to rid you of the evil possessing your hakama.

Nice one. Glad you liked the Bolas idea, for extra effective attacks, the little nippers can be instructed to bite as soon as they hit the victim.

1/ What can an aikidoka do when held off the ground (face down) by all four limbs while someone is stabbing them in the back.
Uber-secret helicopter waza using Ki powers to spin oneself around in the manner of a Catherine Wheel. The knife in the back only helps to provide a focal point for the energies thus truly allowing an Aikidoka to use the opponents methods against them.

Erm.... I thought that they were all like that. Taming them is part of the test for Shodan and is the reason that only experienced Aikidoka can wear them.

Cheers,

Matt.

1. You should pee. When the puddle spreads, they'll let go to get their feet away. The down side is being dropped in the puddle.

2. Feed the damn thing through a chipper shredder. Or give it to an enemy...

1. Fart proudly - stench atemi
2. Swap it out in the changing room for someone else's... without anyone seeing

When struck by lightning, you have to absorb the Ki energy like Yoda and tell the clouds that they "have much to learn about the Force."

When struck by an oncoming vehicle? Well, since you didn't get off line and tenkan... you just go tumbling up the hood of the car, crash the windshield and take a ride to the hospital. Next time... GET OFF LINE! SHEESH!

When a hurricane takes out all your electricity, you just extend your key... into the generator, start it up and plug that puppy into your house! Make sure to disconnect the mains or you'll have to blend with the fire department later on.

Okay... now!

What do you, AIkidoka, do when your spouse catches you buying stuff from BuJin... again, after he/she told ya to knock it off because you're gonna run yourselves into bankrupcy?

What do you do when confronted in a dark alley by a homeless bum asking for spare change... and he's armed with an empty wine bottle and simple, cronic halitosis?

What do you do when your child tells you that the Santa at the mall promised him/her a new XBox 360... and Best Buy/Circuit City are all sold out???

What do you do?

WHAT DO YOU DO???

1. Try not to panic, grovel, smile and take the pain
2. hold your breath until you gain some distance
3. Tell him/her that the elves may have a labor issue and may not be able to deliver on time this year, but will be making late deliveries via the Easter Bunny.

Whatever the attack is -
Don't forget to breathe! Otherwise you will tense up and get dizzy. Before you die.

As long as you can, of course
