    That's a pretty gross thing to say about Aikido when (I understand) the original students of O-Sensei were actually, like, able to fight.

    Segal, dude. Norris has nothing to do with Aikido.

    The online Aikido community seems like it's filled with nice people.

    The online Aikido community also seems full of brainwashed people.

    THEREFORE, once again bad things happen to nice people.

    This comment from a teacher describing a challenge from an Aikido instructor sort of sums it all up:

    So he comes close to me like this [Demonstrates Controling Position of Doom--Ed.] and says, "Now you can do nothing!"

    So I sweep him.

    He gets up from the mat and says, "Okay . . . you can do that."
    It amazes me that people can consider willful ignorance a virtue.

    The Kyokushin of aikido is Daito-ryu. Sadly, you don't see many skilled practitioners of DRAJJ in Japan, much less abroad. They're intensely secretive about their art, and it takes forever to learn, but it is effective from what little I've been privileged to see.

    This stuff is kindof hard core...look at the vids. They are local here in indy and they get banged up preaty good. Still dancy but better than Aikido.

    It might help to know a bit about yoga beyond simply the "Hindu Funny Bending" sense. Eliade's book on Yoga is a good start though Zimmer is more fun. It's an issue of aim and orientation not method.

    As far as the tourny cycle goes, most likely not but not for the reason you probably thing. Love Higashi Sensei like the Teacher he is but when you're an "old man" other things in your life take a priority.

    Who said I didn't like it? Recognizing something for what it is and what it was designed to be according to the words of its founder is not the same as casting aspersions on it.

    Would you mind quoting the words of the Founder that helped you (but none of his direct students as far as I know) realize this ultimate truth?.
