    Taido - More Lulz

    Somebody posted this on the Judo Coaches Connection Facebook page.

    My comment was and is: Looks like they are getting some exercise for sure. Which is a good thing ! I see agility, balance, coordination, dynamic stretching, speed. All wrapped up in a movie-martial arts l like kind of package. Marketing genius, for sure...

    I'd add, and a strong dose of "Japanology" aka weaboo activity.

    As an added bonus, I got this suggestion...
    Sticky Boxing!

    I watched one of the videos, and all I can say is even I could hit the guy if he kept dropping his right hand like that...

    It just doesn't stop...

    Taido's a performing art/exercise/personal discipline method, but they actually do spar along with all the spiritualized fight choreography. The sparring looks like uptight capoeira with lunge punches, but it happens.

      Next time I'm competing I'll keep in mind that the perfect defence for the world's weakest Tomoe Nage is to simply front-flip over the guy.

          Cartwheel and round offs are SOP for dodging Tomoe Nage attempts, weak or otherwise.

            Isn't this the worlds first 3d art?

              I have pulled off Cartwheel into North/South during Judo Randori before.

                I have my students drill it at least once a week. It's a good progression from zempo kaiten solo, to over another person lengthwise, to uke on bottom with foot/leg up, etc. Then they get taught basics of tomoe nage and can drill it in pairs, plus rolling through to a pin from the Tomoe Nage.

                Loads of fun !

                  Yes, I see...

                  As I read through the "blog", they talk about progressions extensively, which is good. As I noted earlier, it looks like a majority health and fitness focused "art".

                    I actually know a few Taido people. It came from a legitimate, old Okinawan art called KishimotoDi, but the techniques were expanded and all kinds of athleticism were added. As I understand it, it's purpose is really to be a martial arts based athletic/gymnastic pursuit. It's fun, and challenging, and actually makes transitioning to the original material relatively easy, I've been told. It's really not meant to be a practical fighting art, in and of itself, though.

                      I'd sign up for Taido in a minute if it were anywhere near me. It looks fun.

                      Honestly the sparring looks exactly like kids used to fight in my neighborhood. We watched way too many Van Damme and Shaw Brothers movies, then before you knew it we were out in the backyard cartwheeling the shit out of each other until somebody got punched in the nuts.

                          The thing with Taido is that no one even claims it prepares you to for self-defence or fighting... At least this is the case in europe

                            Same with capoeira and wushu in my experience at least. Everybody was having fun playing and there was no worry about who could kick whose ass. Who could spin faster, kick higher, etc, sure. Actually fight? No, no one cares. And I did wushu with some fairly hood guys in Memphis too.

                              I'm too old for any kind of bunny, I'm afraid. Are those a thing?
