    How do you get a rope up there when most ninjers heads are already firmly deposited in that location?
    Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

    I'm sorry!!!!

    What Rock Ape, DLDR, f4n4n said...I was just really mean about it. I love TMA (Virus will attest to that) but anyone who's lurked on BS would know that the Chun and Aikido threads have been done to death.

    The WORST thing is that this guy wants to be seen as cool but he's still a JJJ'er who's taken a bit of aikido. If he has so much to say about how unrealistic and impractical Aikido is he should have long ago joined an MMA club.

    Lily has a point, most "Japanese" Jujitsu sucks almost as much as aikido and that's only because they don't believe in ki. But whether he trains in JJJ or monkey kung fu, the aikido school he went to still sucks.

    No, the worst thing is old bullies who want to be seen as cool trying to flame noobs off the forum for at worst a minor infraction. You're projecting.

    On a serious note this thread illustrates one of the big problems with aikido is many teachers inability to answer the question "but what if I do this"

    In BJJ there's always an answer to this, often in aikdio the response is "well if you do the technique right it won't matter"

    When I did Aikido we had a lot of BB's with other back grounds and they unofficially showed me stuff, like escapes from pins and such, which however left me wondering why it wasn't part of the Aikido curriculum. And eventually is why I left it.
