Thread: Why do YOU think Aikido Sucks??
7/31/2013 7:26pm, #251
I can tell you that the wrist techniques used in aikido "work", and that if properly applied in the context of aikido training, will cause serious damage to the joint(s) in question. I think you know that already, though.
So, it begs the question, how to do "alive" training in aikido without injuring uke...so uke has to jump in many cases. So it's not alive...of course this appears to be the old "too deadly for alive training/competition" BS.
But it's not. You can go hard at an aikidoka (I've done it), and IF he/she catches the technique, you had better jump or your wrist will snap. It's a big IF, though, and they in general suck at anything approaching typical Judo randori. Again, in my personal experience with aikido yudansha.
So, context of "good" aikido ? Would you know it if you saw it? There are videos of Morihei Ueshiba doing aikido out there...good or bad Aikido...or Aikibudo...or Aikijujutsu ?Falling for Judo since 1980

Video is the Bullshido burden of proof for an alive MA claim.
Video it is then.
I've made no MA claims in this thread. I asked to see video of someone else's claim.
What BS claim? There was no BS claim, I am not a bullshidoka, hence your reference to those arguments is fallacious tripe.

Now this is the most LOL-worthy post in this thread!
It just needs context:
So which is it, no mind or mindfulness, you confused ************?

And regardless of what Surf Brother Cheng said, I never claimed to have "20 years of experience" in anything, simply because I said I've loved hard sparring since I was ten and chose arts that had it, in response to "do spar?", which was Doof's obvious attempt to derail the entire discussion about good Aikido with a suggestion I didn't know what aliveness was.
Hey, I can compete in Kuoshu until I'm 41. That leaves me four years to scratch that off my bucket list, and give Bullshido a worthy sample of Hung ga san da.
Right now this thread should be about worthy samples of Aikido, or I'm in the wrong thread.

Since I was ten, I've sought out alive, hard sparring martial arts.
I did not want karate kata. I wanted contact sparring.
I did not want dead Aikido or Jujutsu. I wanted judo.
I did not want Ninjutsu, I wanted Hung ga san da.
So where is BS, exactly? Remember your entire premise is based on a misreading of someone else's post, now you're going off the deep end.
Claiming that I've sought out arts with good sparring components is not remotely the same as claiming I have [my age]-[age of 10] years of experience.
You must be fucking desperate.
Great thread to pull though...my favorite of all. WAAAAY better than this one for sure. You should all fucking read it.

It's certainly a MA claim, which you denied doing.
I've made no MA claims in this thread.
So your track record on this thread alone is one of a liar.
Let's hear your MA resume for shits and giggles anyhow.
Pulling posts that old?
You must be fucking desperate.
No that's you, grasping for straws, invoking "us", shifting burden and being confused about your own posting history.

That's kind of why I come to this site. Good video. I don't claim to be able to MAKE it, though. If I claimed to be a great martial artist, you'd have a leg to stand on.
But I've never, ever, claimed to be a good martial artist. Ever.
LOL SHIFTING BURDEN. Yep, the burden shifted all right.
In a thread about Aikido, in a discussion about Aikido, from video about Aikido...
I'll remember never to ask for video of alive Aikido again, that's for sure. You're right, the rants about Aikido's past and future are definitely more valuable.

Having a 'reaction' based conscious while still being 'hyper aware' of your surroundings isn't impossible; and actually makes sense. You don't want to be thinking as much about your next move as you do what your opponents next move is - and the ability to counter attack. 'Mindfulness' is not really the right word. 'Hyperaware' is likely a better term to have been used.
To me it seems that the two posts aren't so much counters to each other as complimenting. A fighter should be hyperaware of the surroundings and his own actions while still reacting on instinct and reactions.
Anyway - you can neg my post now and continue with your ludacris argument for everyones entertainment.
