Aikido is sort of a family thing. My parents used to do it, and my dad even taught it! My brother is taking Akido, and is actually in the same classes I'm taking. Not that I really saw him this evening - we were on opposite sides of the classroom. I asked him afterwards if he was avoiding me, and he said that he just liked his side of the room better; there was more space to throw people around. I guess he does have a point there.
ps. The spell check says "Aikido" isn't a word.
