***Was this quote "taken out of context"?***
"The judoist has no time to allow himself a margin for error, especially in a situation upon which his or another person's very life depends...."

Oof. I finally got a chance to watch the video. So, the basic concept is to dislocate my hip, so that I can slowly throw an awkward kick that delivers all the power of a thrown Frisbee, while simultaneously leaving myself utterly defenseless from any imaginable attack? Where do sign up?

Way to take the technique out of context, guys. It's obviously designed for when Merry tries to kiss your neck, which happens often enough.

As luck would have it, the Bruce Sistaz [sic] are doing a seminar out my way next week. I'm tempted to go and find out for myself how much force is in a scorpion kick. It would make a good video anyway.

I think we're pretty safe until Segal teaches it to Silva.
