#101 The Aikido Kid

Most everyone has heard of the Karate Kid, but have you heard of the Aikido Kid? Like the karate kid, Aikido Kid was bullied. He was bullied for being smaller than the other scarecrows, for having a head full of rags instead of straw, and just for being different. Aikido Kid decided to embrace being different and trained in aikido instead of karate or tae kwon do. He wasn’t interested in attacking or competing; rather, he wanted to learn how to defeat his foes by using their own energy to bring them down. He wanted to master the art of going with the flow. He is well on his way! And, because he has no bones to break, he can break fall with the best of them. Move over Daniel-san; Aikido Kid is in town.
