Not the warm up conversation I was expecting

Sensei: “Okay – get into a circle… actually, there are only three of us, get into a triangle. Wrists!”

Me: “Who’d have thought there would be so much geometry in aikido?”

Sensei: “What’s the sum of the internal angles of a triangle? Hips!”

Me: “Er… 180 degrees?”

Sensei: “And do all triangles have 180 degrees in them? Knees!”

Me: “Um, no, sensei. Only in Euclidean geometry.”

Sensei: “That’s right! So does this triangle have 180? Toes!”

Me: “I suppose it has slightly more than 180?”

Sensei: “Good! Line up!”
