The foreground moved in slow motion, while the background appeared to run at normal speed.
Was that CGI, or was it due to the mass of the guy sucking in chronotons (or similar trekkie bullshit)?

the idea is I will be able function while I am out of breath for short periods of time. freedivers do it so that they don't die underwater.
My point is that as a MMAer I still look for anything that might enhance my game wether it is MMA related or not same as if I had the chance to learn some Akido break falling I would give it a crack because it might help.
I dont feel that I would need that person to have MMA experience that is my MMA coach's job.

Aqua: I really appreciate your level-headed view of the subject. DCS is just busting my chops to see if he can get me to squirm anyway. It's because he loves me.
(In addition, what he's doing is called ad hominem. He's not trying to attack the argument, rather the guy who put the argument together. This is YMAS, after all.)

How are you going to learn to throw unless you throw?
Anyway, I'll give you a 5 for the idea and a 6 so far for execution. Your lack of knowledge of ukemi shows badly, or you might rank higher.

[QUOTE=Yoj;2532284]I was going to, but you made conclusions with anecdotes, i presented a scenario instead of addressing each point, however, if you want to consider an alternate angle, skills that are usable in life are those which become subconscious processes, take driving, as a learner, everything is an effort, with real experience, a lot of the processes are automated and the conscious mind is left having to only deal with an overview of the whole, this is how we become adept at things. We dont fully understand it, but thats the model. in terms of compliant ukemi, there is never a need for it to become a subconscious act, and for aikidoka, it's still something they engage in order to do.
Judoka, dont have that problem, because it happens at random times, forcing it to become a natural response. i suspect that model is also at the basis of alive training.
In randori, less falling happens than in drilling, although their should be more ukemi taken in randori than one typically sees.
As one advances in training, how much to resist, when/how, if one is going to be thrown or take a fall, to fall or if to take ukemi becomes more and more a conscious act (speaking from my own experience). Sometimes it happens so fast and hard, no time to think, but even then there is awareness.
