    Why isn't SCARS on there? Aah, screw it. Wushu is Dancesport with weapons, so I'll vote for that.

    Chinese martial arts fuckin' ROCK. I guess in my case, any martial art I've had my ass kicked by(which is just about every one except TKD, Capoeiria, and Wushu) is cool in my book.

    10th degree. Yeah, I said 10th degree. White belt, o'course. This long and I haven't been promoted once? I must really suck.

    This coming from someone that practices SWORDFIGHTING.

    SCARS isn't that bad, after all it IS KFSS with a new vocabulary.

    Good fuckin' point, Brand. Y'know, I honestly have to say that while kenjutsu is amazingly fun, and it immerses you in Japanese culture and tradition to no end... IT IS THE ABSOLUTE LAST THING I'D RELY ON IN A FIGHT. Swords?

    Everybody's seen Raiders of the Lost Ark.

    I have to vote for Aikido, I even studied it for almost a year when I was looking for a practical self defense system and didn't know any better. My beef with Aikido is that it requires the highest amount of "attacker cooperation" I have ever seen. By this I mean if the attacker does not grap you just the right way and keep holding on even as you start to throw him the technique will not work. Some of the techniques might work if you had first hit your attacker until he was semi-conscious but classical Akido does not include strikes and teach them as a way to set up their throws.

    Now to the person who will undoubtedly write "well Steven Segal could kick your ass" I would respond, yes, but he would have to step outside Aikdo to do so since I wouldn't be dumb enough to grab his arm and he would have to punch me at least a couple of times. Secondly, it says very poor things about a martial art when only its advanced black belts can use it for self defense and does not work for someone who has been studying the art for a couple of years. Finally when Steven was claiming he was the baddest man alive in the late 80s Karate great Bob Wall effectively silenced him by saying lets get it on. It would have been a fair fight and Steven was younger and larger then Bob. If anyone out there knows of anyone who has tried to use Aikido in the UFC or Pride I'd be fascinated to hear the details. Until then I stand by my pick of Aikido as the least effective martial art which is touted as a form of self defense.
