    Pop a cap in my Aikido buttocks...

    I've been enjoying reading posts here for ages, but I keep getting a big message pointing out that I've never posted and should stick my head above the parapet.

    I figure if I'm going to do it, it may as well be in YMAS as the message suggested. I can get shot down all in one go, and relax a bit from there on in.

    My main style is Aikido, which I've been doing for about 20 years. Say what you want about it, it's teh d3adly when I do it! (Mainly because my lack of natural coordination leads to accidents.)

    My second (much more recent) style is Kali, which I am loving.

    My main views are these:

    1. Bad martial arts aren't generally the fault of a particular style, but of how that style is taught, practiced, and TESTED.

    2. Regardless of what it teaches, any martial art class can be counted as good if it delivers what it promises. Light-cardio-dance is fine if its NOT pretending to be anything else.

    3. Its' perfectly ok that not everything you do in a given martial art is an effective fighting technique, but you'd better be fucking clear about what those bits are for. (This is particularly true of TMA, where lots of the development exercises look like technique. I guess in MMA/Boxing, a sit-up looks like a sit-up so no-one is going to try and sit-up someone to death in a bar fight.)

    4. All martial arts are changed by what makes them popular at the time. Getting numbers on the mat risks your art. Aikido attracting the hippies proved that.

    Lastly, I'm off to a joint MMA & FMA course next month where I expect to have my ass handed to me all day. Will it put me off Aikido when it happens? NO, because I enjoy Aikido. Will it change how I practice my Aikido? Too fucking right! Same as it did when it met Judo. Same as it did when it met Kyokushinkai. If you can't take a humiliation now and then, you'll never grow up to be a ninjer.

    Nice to meet you all...

    Now, feel free to pop a cap in my ass.

    Grab my wrist - as I welcome you to the site.

    You might surprise yourself at the seminar. 20 years of training should at least have taught you something. Don't be so humble.

    How many Aikidokas does it take to change a light bulb?





    One, but the lightbulb has to attack first!

    This poster has some unique insights... he had to go over some familiar material to get to those insights is all.

    Haha Yes I have often felt like I am dangerous as hell... due to being such a spaz hen learning something new.

    the point about making a distinction is golden: The truth is that if we take Aikido essentially and we consider it an exerscize in certain movements then it can be decent movement exerscize. If we temper that with an understanding of making the circles smaller and smaller and as the op said consider what stuff is a bit too fanciful, then what we eventually get imo is something that looks lke Aikijutsu and can be useful for certain situations. You can get good weapons retentions skills with Aikido under certain circumstances. Edit: its also a great art for a big strong guy who wants to be a bouncer.... Sankyo, Shihone nage, Kote Gyshe (horrible spelling) work when you are big and strong ane want to remove someone from the scene... they work quite well as long as you make sure you are on their flank.

    Doing anything for 20 years deserves some aprobation.
    This thread never was a high quality conversation - My friend vern Gilbert on the William Acquier thread.
