    GKR?

    gkr - a genuine martial art that would mean an ability to defend yourself against a determined attacker?

    Or is it dangerous McDojo crap that would lead to a good beating on the street?

    I am a 1st dan in aikijutsu and I saw a job advertisment in the local paper for martial arts instructor/ manager - they would ( i am told by people I have asked about gkr ) train me in very short order to BB level and I would have to recruit new members, when I had conned enough into joining I would then get my own dojo and recieve a cut of training fees, belt fess, competition fees etc.

    I went to a comp of theirs today prior to my inmterview and what I saw turned me off the job - the no contact nature of gkr would lead kids ( they were mostly kids and their parents ) into believing that pulled strikes and kicks would protect them against a detrmined mugger/ rapist/murderer

    I cannot in all conscience teach this crap!

    That is not conducive to passionate cunnilingus, my friend, let me assure you.

    Who/what Aikijutsu? 99% of AikiJutsu in UK is utter crap I hear, on a similar level of effectiveness as GKR. GKR is utter crap and offensive mcdojoism obviously.

    Aikijustu - tut,tut - a simple spelling error; or maybe I am lysdexic?

    Do I leave it or register again?

    As for aikijutsu being crap in the UK, I can only say that I don't believe my school is **** as it is taught by a shihan who has spent 30 years 'on the doors' and on a couple of occasions when I have had to use it, it worked well enough

    Thanks for the link!

    You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls. Your are merely protected. Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it

    If it is GoKAn Ryu they are best avoided. Prissy soft contact ****. Basically the Amway of the martial arts world. Purely a money making franchise.

    Not at all - AJ works for me. Other systems work for others, but does GKR work in real life situations for anyone?
