    There's no citation. It's a baseless YMAS style post.
    You like to address certain parts of what I say while ignoring the rest, so how can i answer you properly?

    The part's I'm not adressing are the ones which I don't (a) disagree, (b) give a ****.

    In your last post I adressed a spelling question, a technical confusion and asked you about the sources of your knowledge about japanese/american LEO handcuffing procedures.

    What you felt/noticed when you switched from aikido to judo/bjj is, as much, anecdotical evidence of the degree of transferability between arts so it has to be treated as one.

    If you want to elaborate about how your aikido experience helped you in judo/jj, I don't have any problem. The only problem I had with your previous post is your sankyo/kimura confusion. Everybody is entitled to their own opinions, but you don't get to make up your own facts. Sankyo is not a Kimura and this is a fact.

    I'll repeat it to myself in the shower. As for where the hell did I pull that retarded statement from; haven't you ever seen kung fu movies? :P
    As far as lack of education on nomenclature, sorry about that.

    Sorry for the lack of clarity: I was referring to the vid in post #173. I will look at the other vids in the thread. Thanks also for your answers, Ben, Greg, Step and Colin. When I'm off work, I'll search this out properly.

    Kung fu movies? Yes, of course, Jungfrukällan is my favourite one.

    No problem, you guys in academia sometimes make mistakes too.

    To address the topic of Aikido transferable techniques into groundfighting, last night while rolling (BJJ with GI) I was rolling with another beginner (even wetter behind the ears than me, and a good 5-6 years younger) and he told me that he had a hapkido background (he wasn't arrogant or anything like that about it, the guys in my gym are pretty straight forward with each other about previous experience) and I mentioned my Aikido background, while I was grabbing his bent and turtled "t-rex" arm, turning the wristlock into a Nikyo, my left arm controlling his left wrist, and my right arm (full grip with thumb too) hooking into the crook of his elbow, mimicking a grounded version of a first form type compliance lock (I lost the wrist control to gain the elbow control). I did this from half guard.

    An interesting Aikido/BJJ experience :D

    We were doing this drill in BJJ this Wednesday.

    I haven't learned how to do a chicken wing wristlock properly yet, so I was naturally doing an Ikyo wristlock to finish instead.
    The BJJ club president encourages me to utilize my training from Aikido into BJJ. So far, I've found rolls, ikyo, and nikyo from Aikido transferable to groundfighting. Anybody tried sankyo in groundfighting?

    Note, I'm not jamming on the "shihan", just giving my honest opinion.

    Ben
    I know what you mean about the "Shihan" labell, it gets thrown around way too much, especially in the fringe aikido community. Tissier is legit though, at least as far as hombu aikikai is concerned.
