    I have a green belt in Yoshinkai Aikido and have earned and paid for my right to bash it.

    Since I don't wear a hakama I like to do a Rick Flair Whoooo when appropriate in loo of the whoosh noise

    I'm guessing Porrig does Wing Chun.

    I rented some old "extreme fighting" video once and it had a wing chun guy. The first time I'd seen one in MMA. It showed a clip of him practicing on his students. Several of them attacked him and he impressively "took them out". It was the first time I saw wing chun in action and it looked real cool. I couldn't wait to see him fight for real. They pitted him against a big muscular grappler that totally obliterated him. He just charged him, picked him by the legs, and slammed him on the ground. I don't remember if he won by ground and pound or submission but the wing chunner didn't throw one blow. He looked to be a pretty stout guy himself.

    I've read a little about that anti-grapple crap. I think it said they just kind of collapse to make it harder for someone to take them down all the way.

    because of the anti-grappling, of course.

    Go ahead and bash hakamas. See where that gets you next time there's a transvestite samurai tournament.

    A thousand silly points for Aikido based on this young Aikidoka's comment alone.

    Not sure about _ing _chun, anyone?
    Nope! _ing _un claims to be "scientific" and so most who I have talked to do dismiss Qi.

    Silly point to Aikido.

    I'd probably go with wing chun, because I've met a few people who have gone pretty far through the system, but have no more skill than someone with about a month of boxing. This fact, plus the general opinion, makes me think it ain't worth much.

    Aikido is a bit of a diffirent story. I think that 95% of aikido out there is pure ****. However, I have trained with a fellow who taught yoshinkan, and he made things work even when I, 75 pounds larger resisted...and it hurt! Also, I think aikido can teach you a few good principles of balanced movement, and a few of the techniques do work...it's not all wrist grabs or whatever. All in all, someone is better off with JJJ than Aikido if they want to get into standing joint locking.
