Most of the stuff I was taught in Aikido was pretty bad, some of it was usefull, but only a small percentage. Anyway the worst offender was a move where you lead the guy round through 360 degrees by his arm while he stumbles around like that drunk Shun guy from Virtua Fighter. Then you finsh with a lock that wouldn't work on anyone. That's the worst thing I've been taught.

I was taught this one novelty strike where you vertical punch with your thumb sticking straight out. That was from his lethal bag of "chi" tricks.
Defense against a bear hug: Point your fingers to the floor. I repeat, the proper way to defeat a bearhug is to point your fingers at the floor and do absolutely nothing because we're at a stalemate or something God I wasted my life.
Fun fact for all the boxers out there: "Chi flows through the fist like a tornado." Found that in my old Sensei's notebook, thought it may be helpful to you guys. Accompanying it was a drawing of a fist with a bunch of little swirly lines in it.
We were taught that when a person cocks their arm back low, as in an Isshin-Ryu reverse punch, a nerve is exposed on the shoulder that hurts really, really bad. The only problem is, the nerve is covered up when a person raises their hands for any reason. So basically, we were taught to strike an obscure nerve on the anterior deltoid, but only when their face was a viable target.
I saw an old isshin-ryu seminar tape not too long ago. The instructor showed some anti-grappling, although unlike most antigrapplers, he chose to demonstrate a defense against O-goshi instead of the standard double-leg. Now guys, I know we all like to bag on karateka trying to do shots and whatnot, but you haven't seen comedy until you've seen a totally random man get pulled from a crowd and be told to "put me in an O-goshi". He was struck in the groin for his efforts.
Captain's Log: Just a little update for all my TRUE and HONEST friends out there:
1) I am STRAIGHT! I am STRAIGHT! Get it through your thick skulls, numbskulls!
2) My name is not Ian Brandon Something.
3) Kacey is coming with me now. I have stolen her from the other Christian Weston Chandler.

YOu learned Dim Mak, and donīt like it?
Look, Dim Mak work best under those conditions or
[list=1][*]When the person reciving the death strike is on the floor[*]The person is bound[*]The person is unconcious[*]The person is already dead[*]A friend of yours unloads a 12-gauge, just to be sure[*]You take the (hopefully) corpse, cut his head and limbs, and bury it under a crossroads, at full moon[/list=1]
Do this, and the power of Dim Mak will be yours forever.
These women can do back flips right over my head and still land on there feet .GRrrrrrrr!
THAT'S NOTHING, I USED TO KNOW SOME 12 YEAR-OLDS WHO COULD FIT INSIDE A SUITCASE AND STAY ALIVE FOR 7 OR WAS IT 6 HOURS

Point to the ground in order to "freeze" your opponents mind, or defend the grapple by going down into a fetal position, I kid you not, here is the man who tried to show me these gems: http://www.llewellyn.com/authorinfo/25430

Yup, he's a good con artist, and has a creepy "cult" like following, the reason I went to one of his classes was because one of his "students" was a friend of mine, well up until he was totally brainwashed, one class actually cost $55 dollars, I'm an idiot for paying that, but I was younger and more naive, and was curious about seeing a "true" grandmaster, lol.
