Look, I'm just fucking off here. I pretty much agree with what he said. Don't bring down the heat. I even liked the way he responded to me.

Oh quit fucking whining. Just like you can "claim" you were fucking off, I can call you on your ****.

I'm all friendly with DT, just goofing off myself. I really didn't get that when I first registered here and asked Wing Chun questions and was really upset/offended/insulted by the some ignorance that in hindsight was probably just light hearted goofing. Problem is, light-hearted goofing doesn't work when your being told your martial art sucks.... just a though guys.
I agree, I missed standing joint locks in Aikido, and probably a small bit more if you want to get complex, it's not just about throwing....
I'm just fucking around, figuring **** out here now. Don't take me seriously. But the anecdote/story was as accurate as I remember it to the day. The 20+ year aikido practitioner couldn't handle a jab, at all, and he was in charge of the school. I could probably remember/figure out which school it was by process of elimination and some google if I gave it a go.
I really do think Aikido is shitty, that is my personal opinion and this is coming from a guy who loved Wing Chun and got made fun of here like 6-7 years ago and even was for 2 year impressed by the Segal staged sparring video, so please don't be too offended. I may just even be completely wrong, wouldn't be the first time. But yeah, I can see it all clearly now, and Aikido sucks..... lol
edit: I like the forum by the way. But it's always jarring coming back here and posting or just reading posts. Things are not handled delicately, which may be for the better. But to someone who is being told that their **** is bullshit, it's an added blow and I feel tends to create un-needed resistance, that's where my forum comments stem from. Otherwise, in the long run, this **** works, keep it up and thank you. I might still be in Wing Chun if it weren't for you guys instead of going back to boxing/kickboxing and testing grappling/etc.. cheers fuckers

Yes everyone gets it until someone says something to them. It is rather funny to me.

Also, that super-fast Ke?po-style slappiness seems legit until you try to "just add power" like they tell you to and discover you can't.It seems to me that the Sanjuriu Martial Art is not in guestion, but, rather the character of Mr. Galt.

Aikido teaches stikes only to defend against and these are looping easily defended strikes. I grappled my buddy who teaches Aikido and he had no clue what the hell was going on. Aikido doesn't believe in resistance it's a dance and gives the practitioner a false sense of security and toughness. There is no actual resistance in Aikido. Fighting is like any other sport if you don't fight and just do prescribed Aikido dance with some willing participant you don't know how to fight and have never been trained to fight because you've never fought with resistance. If you're a rock climber you can't just just say that unless you actually climb. Aikidoists don't fight so they're not fighters. Unless someone can show me an actual video. of an actual aikido fight where both competiters have the same equipment and rules.

Probably said it before in this thread. But considering I got my face opened up on Australia day trying to standing arm lock guy who took the opportunity to start raining elbows.
I will say it again.
Because they have convinced people that it works.. and if it works there is no need for that nasty punching throwing or choking.
So all we are allowed to do is fucking Aikido ****. Based solely on compliant training and people with jumped up qualifications.
Australia day also sucks. And I am going to punch Sam kekovich in the face if I ever see him.Whitsunday Martial Arts Airlie Beach North Queensland.

The first time I did it against someone who really wanted to get away, he just took his other arm and started punching toward my face. From then on, I scrapped that whole thing and just went strait to takedowns.
Whichever idiot aproved that escort as our primary one, never had an actual resisting opponent to practice with.

It doesn't work if you don't believe in it guys.
You failed because your faith was weak!
God punishes you for your lack of faith.
As colonials, you are lucky to at least be technically British.
God will punish you less as one of his chosen people.
Next time you apply a standing joint lock, remember:
"If I can dream it, I can achieve it!"
When life gives you lemons... BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!
