Aikidoka alone in the wild
Here's my newbie introduction- rather than do it the regular way I thought I'd jump into the deep end of the pool.
I'm an ex- Tae Kwon Do, Yoshukai and Goju Ryu Karate, Shao Lama Kung Fu practitioner who'se spent the last four plus years learning Aikido techniques at a Yoshinkan dojo. It's the closest thing to Jujutsu I can find locally. I plan to do some grappling training, mainly takedown defense and escapes, this summer.
I've been active on Aikiweb since 2004 but the Internal Energy pontiffs are driving me crazy so here I am. My stated belief is that power comes from perfect technique and nothing else, which is driving all the Jedi Knights there crazy, too.

So physical strength doesn't enter into your "power comes from perfect technique and nothing else" argument, eh (it was the "nothing else" part that clued me in)?
I'd be forced to disagree with you.

Welcome to Bullshido, hope you have a thick skin. You're going to need it.
Why have you studied so many arts and to what level did you acheive in each of them?"To sin by silence when one should protest makes cowards out of men".

I'm glad to see that you admit that Aikido is not grappling training.

Dude, look at it this way, at least he isn't all up on chi's dick.
That is, perhaps, a feat in and of itself.
PROOF that I'm not a completely useless poster:

I grappled an Aikido guy at a get together at a buddies house last night. I'm not sure of how long he had been training, people BS about that all the time, but it was fun! He went all spaz on me, it was glorious. I arm dragged him, took his back, took him down and t-bag keylocked him. He tried to pass it off that he was drunk, but 3 beers does not a drunk make. I didnt argue, it was pointless. I think he tried to wristlock me while I was on top in north south position... It didnt work very well.
