    With the jump kick, was he entering and harmonising, or keeping one point?

    This incident will haunt him for the rest of his life and career.

    Anytime anyone runs a search for his name online this incident will come up near the top of the search. Potential employers, students, associates will all see what he said and did.

    Anytime he attempts to teach a seminar the organizers will find it and likely reconsider taking part in it.

    And who knows what kind of effect it will have upon his current associates, who upon seeing this and knowing it will never go away may feel it necessary to reconsider their dealings with him.

    And the thing is, this won't go away. All types of attempt to spin or justify what took place can be made but anyone interested can find the video and given the nature of information spread even if attempts are made to pull the footage in one place it will simply sprout up elsewhere.

    In high level aikido, atemi is often used a distration or kuzushi if you will. The kick enabled OS to effectively blend with JFS and disturb his hara.

    giggles.

    As has been pointed out elsewhere, JFS was also fond of referring to, and calling Os "Boy", which I'm reliably informed is also a racist epithet in the context of redneck to black dude.

    Tauntingly singsong-ing "****** boy", on the other hand... I can't think of any situation where you'd do that unless you were a horrible racist to begin with.
    Like I said earlier we don't know what was said in those missing seconds. I've seen blacks use the word right back after being called ******.

    That's a little iffy though, as he could easily claim that as being a mere part of his vernacular. As he is older than them, using "boy" as a pronoun is pretty justified, racial implications aside.

    Thankfully, John still had the absolute lack of foresight to drop the N bomb, so should anything arise out of this to cause legal ramifications, the proof is right in the video.

    What about "house boy", is that part of an older person's vernacular too?
