People who learned in this environment and failed to work on practical application or take the time to examine the roots of the techniques, had weak, often ineffective techniques, they got black belts and went on to produce more schools and more black belts that where the same as they where.

    They are the predominate example of Aikido. They are going to be worried about the proper way to fold a Hakama, whether or not a school has Hombu recognition, or the proper way to do kamiza ni rei. The concept of getting out there and actually doing the technique against someone outside of their school is against the principles of "Aiki" and other excuses. The trappings of Aikido and the philosophy of Aikido are more important than the core of Aikido.

    This is very reminiscent of the Aikido BB I played with... I won't say spar because spar implies (to me) exerting some effort and I didn't. He was completely unprepared for what happens when somebody doesn't just throw a lunging punch and I ended up beating him with... a standing choke. He didn't know how to escape it.

    I mean it was more embarrasing than the san da match that I won with a spinning backfist. God damn! Give me a person who can beat me before my skills atrophy!

    The problem isn't Aikido, the problem is the tree huggers who embraced the spiritual aspects without realizing that O-Sensei could do the whole peaceful/spiritual/inner light thing because he had the street skills to throwdown when necessary.
    Talking out your ass again...I am sooooo surprised!

    PS Folks...In my long years of practice I have never seen a "Ki" blast It simply does not exist.


    There are two distinct styles of Aikido The Martial and The Spiritual...

    Some of us practice Aikido as a Martial Art and leave the Spiritual folks alone as they are not harming anyone.

    If you Bullshidoites wish to attack the Aikibunnies go ahead...Personally I have better things to do than to beat up a bunch of harmless little bunnies.

    LOL! Mat everyone knows that the folks in Japan make the big money! It'd cost me a month's salary to get a plane ticket over there. Shanxi is easy to find... Just a day away from Beijing! Or you could throw together a Japan throwdown and try to pressure me into showing up there. ;)

    Maybe they haven't shown it to you yet.

    And frankly who gives a **** what you've seen. I've seen it, and it happens A LOT in Aikido. You're just shutting your eyes, closing your ears and going "LALALALALA I DIDN'T JUST SEE THAT".
