Akuzawa and Upyu of the throwing 100kg peeps with a pinky finger thread are holding a seminar near DC later this month.
Japanese Internal martial arts applied to MMA. For real.
We are pleased to announce a weekend seminar with the Aunkai's founder, Akuzawa Minoru (Also of "Throwing 100kg Peeps with the Pinky" fame Bullshido) , on May 31-June 1
The development of an integrated physical structure and the ability to spontaneously apply the power it generates in a free form manner is the goal of internal martial arts training. Akuzawa Minoru is a contemporary practitioner who has focused his training on acquiring and developing the sophisticated body skills associated with this goal.
This will be Akuzawa Sensei's first seminar tour in the states, and it is a rare opportunity to encounter the remarkable internal training techniques employed in Japanese Koryu. In two days, Akuzawa Sensei will present a set of effective training exercises, and will demonstrate the results of their practice. Participants will be invited to test his ability to manifest extraordinary internal strength in a variety of startling demonstrations, including martial application against spontaneous tactics (ie non-rehearsed, anyone is welcome to step-up) seen both in popular mixed martial art fighting (mma) and more traditional demonstrations of advanced skill often seen and debated in Chinese and Japanese arts.
Akuzawa Sensei will cover the practical and theoretical aspects of aligning and conditioning the body to generate and apply internal strength, focusing on both structure and dynamics.
The material in this seminar generally covers a specific conditioning method that develops unusual bodyskills and aren't seen that often in modern sporting Budo anymore.
The following two articles explain the theory behind the body mechanics that are trained at the aunkai. They don't believe in "the deadly" and spar weekly.
Is anyone planning on checking him out to see if he is bullshido or not? I'm a bit biased as I go train in Japan with him.
I know from past experiences, that Akuzawa wants people with MMA backgrounds to check him out.

If you touch him, you will know the difference.
(I typed in Caps lock before which I shouldn't, so I revised them now.)

All of you n00bs, STFU and do not pollute MABS with insipid one line posts.
This is not a forum for meaningless observations.
This is your only warning.

I just wrote simple and clear truth with one line.
No intention to pollute MABS.
Without touching Mr. Akuzawa, it is impossilbe to understand the difference
between his movement and that of Systema.
My personal view point is that, Mr Akuzawa let you understood his capability
by moving like Systema which is well-known in your country.
His true movement is very dangerous and not proper to be recorded in the film.
By the way, how could I remove noob icon from this area?

You don't. You're a n00b. That's why it calls you a n00b. When you've been around long enough, it automatically disappears.
Typing in all CAPS lock is the equivalent of shouting. That is part of the reason why people will not take you seriously.
Also, making statements about how dangerous your teacher is, and how it is not proper for him to be recorded on film will also keep people from taking you seriously.
I am quickly beginning to think that attending this seminar will be a waste of my time. HL1978, any reason why I should think otherwise?

Thank you for your explanation. I learned the rule here.
