I was asking one of the Japanese I work with some questions about Kyuodo, and martial arts in general.  I told them that I was taking Aikido downtown, and he started laughing… which made me a bit mad… they said that Aikido wasn’t very popular in Japan.  That Judo & Kendo was the most popular.  I’m not sure why they were laughing.

oh well… Aikido is popular with me.  That’s all that matters.
