    I bet it wouldn't jarr you if that character could do it because she was blessed with superhuman reflexes. It's the whole impossible/improbable thing.

    I had already sparred with one of their bigger better guys. They made excuses saying he could have done this or that. I told him aikido was for dudes who aren't scottish and aren't gay buy still like to wear dresses and hold hands.

    Yeah that makes sense, lets show how effective combat systems work to people by putting them in triangles while we elbow them in the face.

    Yeah that'll make the other person think "hmm... I feel enlightened, I'm gonna go do a functional art now".

    The Dresden Files is a pretty good sci-fi/fantasy series. Not great by any means, but it's reasonably entertaining. It's a guilty pleasure.

    Anyways, Karren Murphy, a cop, fucking wristlocks people left and right
    Etc..

    So your pissed off about fake aikido in a science fiction book?
    man thats the fucking worst I feel your pain!
    Do you also get pissed off when PvPers ruin your little role playing get togethers on world of warcraft? I know I do!

    Seriously your cry-assing about a science fiction series on here? It's the comedy forum not poor your heart out and look for hugs forum.
    put your left hand on your right shoulder and your right hand on your left shoulder- now squeeze....

    Bullshit.
    Wait let me fix this.

It's sad that i don't realize 1800 other users have came up with the same BS story in THEIR sad attempts to try and fit in with the crowd.
    Your welcome.

    No it doesn't.
    But douche bags trying to jump on the lOLZAIKIDO train with either shitty stories or weak-ass rants does infact get old. Very old. This isn't your sister son. Rides aren't free. If you want to get on the LOl Aikido train then you gotta pay for the ticket.
    How much is the ticket? Creativity.
    Atleast your bitching about aikido from a fiction source and not pulling the old "OMG you won't believe this! I was at my gym and this aikido guy said.."
    For your tidbit of creativity you can ride in the train car with all the gypsies.

    I already realize it's a work of fiction. I understand LOTR never happened. Dresden Files and LOTR are entertaining novels, detailing events that never occurred, much like the "history" of __ng __un. You, once again, do not understand the point I am making. I have never done magic. I have never fought a vampire. I don't commune with the spirits. So I can willingly suspend my disbelief due to the fantastic nature of those events.

    However, something I am very familiar with is the nature and reality of physical violence and martial ability. So when I read about a woman, no more than 5'1", ~110 lbs., physically disabling a 6'+, 200+ lbs. violent criminal who is in good shape and well versed in physical violence by twisting his pinkie, I have a hard time staying in the mental state of disbelief.

    So yes, I have a problem with how aikido is displayed IN A WORK OF FICTION. Any more moronic character assumptions you'd care to throw my way?
