    I wouldn't mind seeing some video of SCARS in action. And I don't mean that stupid reverse choke take down thing. Has anyone ever seen it in action and have any evidence? DRD said something about using some of the principles. Maybe he can come up with some video.

    Hold on now... I do not do SCARS, hell I haven't even bothered to find out what it is, I am just not interested in it. I would also like to not I am NOT crticizing Akido. I am simply saying it is not very effectvie on me. It is a fact of life and of martial arts, everything does not affect people in the same way. Take Judo for instance... I would bet just about any Judoka (or similar art) can throw me around like rag doll, simply because I am a small guy (5'10" 140 lbs), they just have to catch me first LOL!

    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>

    Them: "We have strikes in aikido!!!"
    Me: "Really?"
    Them: "Yeah, there implicit in the techniques, we don't teach them"
    Me: "How did you find this out?"
    Them: "Someone told me"
    ME: "You've never done them before"
    Them: "No, but i've seen them"

    i've had this conversaiton with aikidoka at least a half-dozen times...this was a good case scenario...it doesn't include the usual "well if it didn't work i'd just do X,Y,Z"

    BUT, aikido principles are effective...use them both in BJJ and krav...just got to hit the person first.

    really, we are taught the strikes and we also are taught that they are essential for most of the techniques to work.

    you say that, but you don't really see strikes in many demonstrations (i;ve seen quite a few clips and attended enough classes to make that rough judgment)

    don't forget...i like aikido, just don't do it for self-defense. When i went to sign up for aikido the guy told me if i wanted to learn self-defense or fighting there were quicker ways to do it...that is why i liked the instructors there. They were honest., it was the students who were filled with mysticism

    alot of styles have removed the striking and resisting partners from practice all together. But not all Aikido is like that, there are several organizations that are lead by former students of Ueshiba who have stuck with the old original style of Aikido taught before Ueshiba's death. It was in fact Ueshiba's son that removed some of the practical aspects of Aikido, this is what caused Aikido to splinter into tons of different organizations.

    The schools that usually include weapons practice tend to be the ones that focus more on the martial aspects of Aikido since Aikido is based heavily on the sword and staff movements. It also forces students to take everything a little more serious as you might get clonked on the head with a bokken if you do not move out of the way of the attack properly.

    Most Aikido deserves the type of reaction it gets in the martial arts community I am just asking that people investigate it a little deeper before making summary judgements. Not all Aikido is the same.

    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.
    I guess individuals like Wastrel's just wasting his time learning how to grapple in the event he ever runs into someone with your "mystical" abilities. (Laughs)
