    What are my qualifications in Aikido?
    I'm a 6th kyu ^_^
    (Judo is 2 years after the Aikido finished)
    My grappling experience mostly comes from that 2 year period.

    In a website that prides itself on stringent requirements, it's pretty amazing how far such a conversation can go before such issues are raised :)

    To try and target more accurately the core of your comment - what's special about me that should be teaching Ukemi? Nothing. Nothing at all.
    Am I qualified to teach Ukemi? (possibly? what kind of qualification do you need?)

    If it was so long ago when I did Aikido (and still pretty long since I used to to Judo, too) Why do I feel that I can teach Ukemi?

    Well, I'm pretty damn good at ukemi.

      Eight years of a shadowy aikido style (from 16 to 24 years old) not having training in the last 7? How many years of Judo/Jits/Grappling?

      Seriously, WTF?
      He is teaching people to fall over not fight MMA I do not see the problem.

      I have a free dive instructor who is teaching me oxygen depravation training. He cannot fight his way out of a paper bag.

      Swims good though.

        I think you might have misunderstood my second paragraph, it was only meant to make fun of Aiki-pansies :) I agree with you about not retaining Aikinage.
        PS: I think your ukemi class will be a great success. I had to teach few muay thai guys and boxers how to ukemi because they wanted to participate in the hipthrow+takedown session, and I think there's definitely a demand for ukemi.

          Furthermore - in Aikido (as it is with many other arts) there are (in my opinion) two instructors out the front, when techniques are being demonstrated. Tori and Uke. Tori is teaching Nage, Uke is teaching Ukemi. Following this logic, I can claim that I have already taught Ukemi for several years, too.

            I like this thread better.

            No, wait, the other one.

            No, this one.... AAAAARRRRGGGGHHHHHH! I can't decide. Where's the government to tell me what to do when I need them?

                  OK. Thanks for the clarification.

                  Resistance is futile, you will be investigated. :)

                  I expected more experience in a rough and tumble combat sport with lots of sweeps, throws and takedowns.

                  If it was so long ago when I did Aikido (and still pretty long since I used to to Judo, too) Why do I feel that I can teach Ukemi?
                  I'm not a psychologist and can't read minds across the globe. Why you feel qualified to teach ukemi for SD or MMA escapes me.

                  Well, I'm pretty damn good at ukemi.

                  Oxygen depravation? Sounds kinky to me. Link to video please (don't forget the NSFW tags). Thanks in advance. :P

                      The aikido guy looks like the Michelin mascot.

                        Ahh, checked the vid description, he's that Staniezski chap who someone spams on the Judoforum whenever he does something.

                        What's the context of this? Challenge match, friendly spar?

                          The foreground moved in slow motion, while the background appeared to run at normal speed.

                          Was that CGI, or was it due to the mass of the guy sucking in chronotons (or similar trekkie bullshit)?

                            Cant find any video. Basicly it consists of riding a stationary bike while holding your breath.
                            the idea is I will be able function while I am out of breath for short periods of time. freedivers do it so that they don't die underwater.

                            My point is that as a MMAer I still look for anything that might enhance my game wether it is MMA related or not same as if I had the chance to learn some Akido break falling I would give it a crack because it might help.

                            I dont feel that I would need that person to have MMA experience that is my MMA coach's job.

                              Aqua: I really appreciate your level-headed view of the subject. DCS is just busting my chops to see if he can get me to squirm anyway. It's because he loves me.

                              (In addition, what he's doing is called ad hominem. He's not trying to attack the argument, rather the guy who put the argument together. This is YMAS, after all.)

                                Read an Australian MMA mag one day. You would be amazed at how many freak kung fu/karate, how the hell did you become a fighter training like that guys there are out there that are doing well.
