in reply to OT: The WarriorMonks

I'm another aikidoka. I've only trained with AAI/AAA affiliated dojos so far, although I attended one seminar of "realistic aikido" (didn't like it).

I've trained karate when I was a kid (elementary school), but had to quit after achieving 6th kyu due to time conflicts.

What is funny is that Aikido works the way I imagine drugs work: when I started I was exhausted after one hour's training. The second year I attended both the beginner's class (again) and the intermidiate class. This year, I'm attending all the classes offered at the dojo, and I'd take more if they offered them (and if I could fit them in my schedule...)

    "realistic aikido"? Do you mean aikijujutsu? Either way it's nice to know another warrior monk.

      No, it's a separate school - I found links here and here.

      The school was founded by a guy from Serbia, and it's much more in-your-face than the Aikido I'm used to. Near to no ukemi, holds way beyond the point of pain, and most of the movement is straight into the attacker instead of going out of the line of the attack.

      As I said, I didn't like it.
