Re: weird aikido dreams
The only aikido dream I can remember having was one maybe a couple of years after I started training. This is how I've described it elsewhere...
Once, many years ago, I had a very odd dream. There in the hallway of my parents' house, just outside my room, stood a diminutive old Japanese man. He smiled at me and jabbered away in a language I didn't understand.
I smiled in return.
He then proceeded to throw me around the hallway, one end to the other, all the while laughing as if it were the best joke in the world. And it probably was, he was so small and frail in comparison.
And I was laughing too.
After this technical demonstration of irimi-nage, O-Sensei jabbered away some more, smiled, and I woke up perplexed.
