    Hell yeah! Hell no!


    So, when faced with a dangerous encounter, using EFO might work, some of the time, in ways that can't be predicted.

    In the same way that putting my hands in my back pockets and Moonwalking away from the opponent might work, some of the time, in an unpredictable way.

    People love Michael Jackson and electromagnetic fields too.

    The amount of waffling and evasion when asked about self-defence was at a black-belt level.

    I especially liked when he said "the basis is that the more you put intention into your attack, the easier it is to use it. We get the power to steer your attack from your intention." Comparing Jukka nearly falling on his ass trying to drag the interviewer to the ground at the 1:35 mark, with the limp attacks from his student were lovely to watch.

    Jukka doesn't even have good basic Aikido skills. With the interviewer determined to hold on to his hand, he should have had no trouble taking him down. Instead, he did what beginners do, attempt to take uke down over his front leg, which is what he is posting on. Jukka also doesnt seem to like keeping his back straight and bending his knees, but keeps bending over. He lacks energy and shows no evidence of flowing, continuous motion in his technique. Everything is choppy, limp, and awkward, as if he's studied with Grandmaster Daw.

    If he were a Aikido student testing, I'd place him at about fourth or fifth kyu. He says it best himself in the video: "We have no technique."

    IMO, any MArtist who dresses all in black had better be able to back it up a lot better than this.

    Good article, citing and featuring the video of Finnish "EFO master" Jukka Lampila vs. the Spanish skeptics.

    I've seen that video before... Its just sad if you ask me. I actually started to feel sorry for him at the end where he seemed to have had an epiphany, almost a moment of clarity... That this **** he's probably been studying his whole life... Really doesn't work.

    When the weak untrained kid challenged him at the end... He didn't seem angry, he seemed very confused and even a little heartbroken.

    However at the end of the day, this is nothing but, as Joe Rogan would put it, fuckery.
