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

During Winter Camp we had a towel crisis (I don't think the hotel had any idea how many towels 250 aikidoka could use up). The maid finally came in to say that she had some towels for us, did I want them? I said "Hai!" and bowed to her, and then felt puzzled because she didn't bow back....

Oh yeah, and if you can't sleep on nights where you didn't have class because you have too much excess energy

<end edit>[/quote]

I have that symptom and worse. I can't sleep the nights before I train because I get all psyched for class. Then I finally do fall asleep, but I'll be all tired and sluggish when it's actually class time the next morning from not getting enough sleep.

I would be if I weren't at work. Damn it. That just made me think of one.... Your job gets in the way of your aikido training.

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

U think incorporating your aikido in to the work place is a good idea .... (Nikkyo on old people??? ... not a good combinationČ!) lol

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!

Especially the little old Filipino guys; don't let them have any sharp objects, either, unless you REALLY want to practice blending!

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

If you do the 31 Jo Kata, and the kumi jo (partner practice) with chopsticks at a Chinese restaurant. . . and then you discuss the finer points of the kata with your partner while the waitress looks at you like you must be from another planet.

True story, saw two of the folks from our dojo do it. . .

I almost bow every time I enter my church! I guess I'm in a similar frame of mind as when I'm about to train.

I just noticed this thread was in the humor forum and I must say I am appalled. Addiction is never a laughing matter and you should all be ashamed of yourselves.

....You just minimised this window and found that the desktop on your works computer contains 3 clips of your sensei performing technique, 1 of Shihan Cottier performing technique, you organisations grading syllabus, a discussion on Ki, but strangly, no work related folders

You know your're addicted if:
While sitting in seiza having sex I keep thinking should I be on my toes or not? Am I centered properly?

Mark, you definitely need help, particularly if this is happening when there is another person involved.
If it's just you it doesn't really matter so much
