    I think that's the principle behind the extendable baton (as opposed to the good old fashioned night-stick). Can't see it working with a fist though.

    The principle behind the extendable baton is that it collapses shorter than the nightstick so its easier to carry and conceal, and its made of metal so its harder and heavier for its size. Fluid shockwave isn't a big part of design of either, although it is for a sap.

    Or were you just making a dick joke too? Cause that's what Resonance is doing there.

    In general, I wouldn't say Aikido sucks.

    This, however, does:

    I don't either.

    What's the deal? You get to a certain level and everyone below you is brainwashed into doing pratfalls so as not to embarass the guy with the nicest jammie-pants?

    People can pay to do whatever they want AFAIC but to try and pass off what amounts to basically "play fighting" as "effective self defense" is kind of shiesty IMHO.

    Now, I've tried throwing hadukens IRL and let me tell you, the results were underwhelming at best...

    People at both aikido clubs where I train would laugh at this.

    Why? Because this is a more practical demonstration than anything I've seen from the Magic Pants crew:

    Aikido sucks becasue I had to stop judo and kendo for six months, but was able to continuing training aikido (doctors orders - aikido is classed as non-contact). I put on 7 kg. I look fat in my special magic pants. I bought a kitten and gained another chin. I blame aikido for this.

    My biggest complaint about aikido as it is widely practiced, at least where I am, is that most clubs just don't train hard enough. I don't need realistic combat training, but I do want to sweat and to learn, and that means lots and lots of repetition. A lot of aikidoists seem to be under the impression that aikido can be learned by talking and thinking about it. A lot of the world's complaints about aikido would go away if more people would just shut up and train.
