Re: You might be an Aikido addict if ....

... you think it's apprpriate that the Site Kiosk browser on the hotel computer you are using has a rotating yin/yang symbol

.... you read post #50 and think that sums up how you felt when you cam back after sixteen years.

... you are reading this at a hotel where you will stay while attending a seminar your sensei is teaching

.... you are not ashamed that you originated this thread

No, those are the hardcore Aikido addicts. People posting here aren't there yet, but we are still hooked.

Re: You might be an Aikido addict if ....

1. You never miss a class.
2. You can spend hours at a time on web sites such as this one.
3. You practice ukemi in your basement after every one else is asleep. (usually on concrete floor because it takes to long to pull out the mattress)
4. You practice ukemi in you sleep and wake up after slamming into a wall.
5. You find this amusing.

Hey, I'd be on the mat if I could, the mats where I practice are used by other groups too, so they're not always open for me to practice. Plus I don't have anybody to practice with at random times.

Unless you suffer from both Aikido addiction and Aikiweb addiction ( http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8227 ); then you're really screwed.

*weeps by extending ki on my tears*
My dojo is closed during the day, and only open during class time. My sensei is married with two kids, so he actually has a life outside of Aikido.

I took my wife on vacation twice last year. To Albany, NY for the 20th Anniversary of Faust Sensei's teaching in the Capital District and to New York city for the Christmas seminar at NY Aikikai. She does not do Aikido but she is still an addict. Me too I guess.

You might be an aikido addict if you practically made a verbal prenuptial agreement with your wife that you will never stop training, ever.

(Besides, the time apart keeps her from being sick of me.)

Gotta remember to use that as my excuse.

You're welcome, Matt. And on a serious note, you really shouldn't be eating or drinking anything if you go into a section labled "humor." Just a thought.

I know, I know. My fault. It was a learning experience.
