    Was messing around with a friend after one Aikido class. We were just doing throws from a 2 handed grab on the shoulders. After class, buddy basically grabbed and held. I attempted the usual techniques. He muscled through them. He then tried to throw me himself. I did some funky things with my feet that was worlds away from Aikido footwork, and kind of half-stayed on my feet. He then grabbed me in an old skool bear hug and we went to the ground, where we wrassled' for a few minutes, neither knowing what the other is doing. I finally got him with a self improvised RNC, where I didn't even get my hooks in or placed my chocking hand on my bicep. Just kinda clamped on his neck and squeezed untill he stoped twitching and struggling.

    Years of Aikido training really kicked ass there. I figured if my Aikido was gonna look like that, I might as well just cut out the middle man and go straight to MMA.

    On a bit of an unrelated note, had an Aikido buddy say Aikido will not work in the octagon/ring because you're in a limited area and have no room to back up. Apparantly Aikido will only work on a large football field, or in the Sahara dessert.

    Err Aikido is close circle fighting designed for tight areas without a lot of lateral movement. Your buddy is on crack. Aikido as it is practiced today has many issues with working in MMA but that is not one of them.

    I dont have silly stories like you guys because i am cool.
    I have a mildly funny and shamefull story: one time during judo some guy ripped my judo pants and i was on a full tatami in my shorts.
    so uhm..yeah...that was it basically.

    I never get into bs like my style vs yours, or backyard brawling etc.
    thats for kids.

    I had a similar revelation when my granddad (a Golden Gloves regional finalist) pimp slapped me after I had trained for 10 years (7 to 17) in Goju and TKD. He was 57 at the time. He landed three shots before I landed one.

    I was a young missionary just out from the MTC a few months when my companion and I were farting around in the mission home. I was telling him about some Van Damme move that I knew I could do and if he didn't stop hassling me, I'd have to use it on him. He laughed and asked what it was. I told him to grab one of my feet and hold it up in the air and I would show him. He did it, and I tried to do one of them flashy crescent kicks I saw in a movie.

    To make a long story short, I fell flat on my ass with a loud thump that had the nurse, the mission president and his assistants come running. My face was red, and it didn't take long for me to start laughing as hard as my companion. That was the day when I realized that all my karate kid and Van Damme moves I thought would work, wouldn't, and I was in for a rude awakening if I ever tried them on T3h Str33t.

    I know of a few people that have trained there and I think I went to high school with some of the people on his "list of students". I've never been there, though most of the people I train with have gone in for open mat... at least that's what I've heard. Have fun. If you are on the East side you may want to check out 'Neutral Ground'. It is a newer school from what I understand, and I started there back in December. I like it, I think it is more expensive than Matamoros (I'm told) due to location.
