    LMAO.. It also pretty much guarantees that by the time you reach 6th dan, you'll be a certified fat bastard ready for a heart attack at the first hint of having to break out in a sweat.

    Ahem... read what Mark, Simio (as he calls himself now), and I have said and think about it. Actually... it probably won't make much difference so whatever. I just hope you don't ever need to use your aikido for any real self defense...

    And just for the record, the Tokyo police aren't using physical Aikido techniques for self defense either nor is any other LEO worth their salt. Sure they may use some of the techniques (or similar techniques) in day to day operations but it's at a different point in the process under a different context and not at the point of self defense. I could go into detail but why bother... We probably have VERY different views of what self defense means.

    Edit - Just for fun, please describe self defense to us and give us an example of how you would use your aikido. This could be fun!

    I suppose we still will disagree on stuff and agree on others. Nobody agrees on anything 100% nor should they. Hell, if I agreed 100% with my wife... well, thats another story!

    Anyway, I'm at a different point in my life and I'd be willing to bet you are too. I will say though that debating with you helped me improve my debating skills which has helped out here over the years. So to that I tip my hat to you.

    BTW - I have a Judo/BJJ related question you can probably help me out with. I'll post it under a new thread as to not hijack this one any further and throw you a link.

    1. I don't do Aikido.

    B. I wasn't actually being serious at all.

    iii. Did you actually read what I wrote? Simio obviously did, that's why he emitted some LOLLAGE.

    Yes, but Mark's name is Mark. i.e. aka MTripp.

    Reading comprehension my good man! That makes up for my troll blunder so we're even! :evil6: (And F U if you're trying to troll me now...)

    By the way DAVE, you ever do that article on AR whatever the hell his name was? I see he is still alive and kicking over at Hock's site re-hashing the same crap year after year. :angry7:
