Daito ryu and aikido, cousins in art, but unified in the aiki spirit.

There are certain attributes that are unique in Daito Ryu and Aikido. Hakama, angles, pinning techniques, and even history.

However there is one aspect that all aiki practioners do have in common. That is an obsession with aiki and a good sense of humour. Sometimes we even mix the two together

Eg

You are an aiki junkie if...

you use aiki terms to describe your own love life.

everytime somebody gives you their hand to shake there is a two second thought that you can do kotegaeshi on them.

when dancing with a partner (Salsa or Ballroom) there is always a temptation to throw them.

You miss getting your arm in a lock (stretch) after not training for weeks.

When someone hugs you in esteem, you try and blend with them.

Steven Seagal is not just an actor and youre not 100% sure if he is good or bad for your art.

Other Martial artist (non aiki) think youre soft until they train with you.

Youre a sucker for pain.

When getting a really hard massage, you say that is nothing in comparison to aiki locks, eventhough any normal person would probably start crying with pain.

You cannot resist the temptation of a forward role everytime you step on grass.

You have attempted to do a forward roll on concrete.

Your friends dread you when you learn a new technique.

You just cannot comprehend the use of really high kick.

You feel at home when youre on a mat.

you thank people after they have put you in a eye watering arm lock.

Re: You are an Aiki junkie if ....*

You have performed shihonage on your clothes whilst hanging them in the clothes line

Back in the 90's you thought that a Steven Seagal Pony tail was a good idea

You are absolutely convince that a painful joint lock is good for your well being

You saw the movie 'The Last Samurai' and you have identified 101 instances where Tom Cruise did his techniques incorrectly

You think that a beer belly is a Solar Panel for good Hara and Ki.

You hold a folded golf umbrella in chudan stance

You have shattered a light bulb at home or in your apartment because you were playing with your boken in doors.

Q: How many aiki practitioners does it take to change a light bulb?
A: 100...
1 to change the light bulb; 9 to oversee and give him instructions; 15 will copy his technique;
30 will try and stop his lightbulb changing technique;
15 will say they can do better; 10 will say he should use his hip better; 15 will say he needs to relax more; and 5 will remind him that it will take another 25 years to master his light bulb changing technique.

Come on guys I know you can add to this thread a few more aiki observations.
