    "style bashing?" style "bashing" is fine if the style is ineffective.

    I don't know were people got this ideia of me doing CMA. In my first post I said about 15 years of external martial arts, so people would not think I did Tai Chi and say "But that takes 25 years to master, bla , bla, bla ......."

    However, I think people have gotten the wrong ideia about what I described.

    We got into a clinch 3 times (because I dove in since I was not being able to hit him from the large and medium ranges) and I hit him once very hard during the clinch but it that had no effect. He absorved it very well and was able to put me on a lock several times and I had to tap out. That means .... he won.

    When I say I was completely dominated and that I couldn't touch him, I meant he controlled the whole fight, did not get hurt at all, my punches did not alter his balance and he made me tap out many times.

    "Create as a God, command as a King, work as a Slave"

    OH, now you clarify. Much easier to believe now. Okay...that's all for me.

    Go away I'm talking to myself

    I have no doubts about the effectiveness of Akido at large. I DO, however, have doubts about the effectiveness of Akido on me.

    My Isshinryu Karate instructor is also a BB in Akido (can't remember if he is Ni-Dan or San-Dan). He will often times bring in many of the various locks that he has learned there into his bunkai instruction and general training. When he demonstrates on the other Karateka, they quickly end up grunting and tapping out once he has them locked. When he demonstrates it on me... I rarely feel anything. I believe this comes from me being very very flexible and double jointed in many areas.

    He and I once worked on locks and transitions and it took him 20 minutes to finally find and get a lock on me that would work... and that was with me doing nothing but rolling and twisting out of his grasp.

    So that in a nut shell is my opinion and experience with Akido... works great, but certainly not on everyone.

    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    If my Sensei can't apply a lock on me (I'm the token "immune to most wrist locks" guy in my dojo), he'll usually just punch me in the jaw and say "In real life you can't keep fumbling around for a lock" or something to that effect.

    Boyd, you are quite correct, however, people like you and I should and would (I hope) use that to our advantage... while our opponent is busy trying to get us in a lock that won't work... we should be punching THEM in the jaw or somewhere else and say "In real life, that **** don't work on me."

    Personally, I like that in an attacker, it means his joints are structurally weak and can be easily disjointed through compression leverage and kinetic strikes. Hardly a tactical advantage. Besides, when you shock the nervous system of the man with this "flexibility," his muscles tighten and constrict in pain making it that much easier to take that guy apart.

    The amateurish manner stylists view combat makes me chuckle. <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

    I am not sure what you are talking about Kungfoolss, but I have never had a problem with my joints popping out of socket at all, it just helps me roll out of the lock attempts and to counter strike. Nor have I ever had a problem with my muscles tightening in pain as you describe.

    Mad Hatter,

    You're obviously lying because using the SCARS principle of autokinematics, 100% of people will react in the same way to any stimulus.
