    Is there anything good about this place!?

    http://memphisaiki-kai.com
    Aikido is one of the world's newest, most mysterious martial art, incorporating graceful dance-like maneuvers with the ancient combat skills of Japan's most famous fighting arts.
    After reading up a little on Ke?po I wanted to try it , but there's a limit to good schools here in the south.
    While I was dilligently scouring the interweb for a school I came across this place...but a few red flags came up.



    This for one. What the hell is this!? I've read too many diaries of teenage MAers (like me) to look at this unobjectively

    Kempo includes grappling techniques, Tuite; vital point strikes, Kyusho Jitsu; and weapons techniques, Kobudo.
    Huh, now, what?

    And apparently they have "Friendship Seminars" that pretty much operate like a stag party or something; I don't know. Could be a cult.:dead:

    Help me. anyone who takes Ke?po. How are your schools? What's the curriculum? How's this place?

    Despite how poor Aikido is , it certainly doesn't include "dance moves." I say stay away.

      I say go, and enjoy having your testicles kicked.

        Looks like an Aikikai lineage type of school, part of the Aikido Association of America (founder is Fumio Toyoda). The founder of this school studied aikido with 2nd Doshu i.e, Kisshomaoru Ueshiba, son of M. ueshiba. Subsequently he split from hombu when Koichi Tohei left Hombu to form his Ki-Aikido society.

        Having said that, I think this dojo is more in line with Tohei's principle, meaning seeing Aikido more as a form of gentle health giving exercise rather than as a fighting skill development MA.

        I hope I make sense.

                So is it an elaborate tactic where they take a shot to the nuts just to get within wrist range?

                  In summation your argument denotes a lack of intellectual honesty on your part. It is my contention that this matter would best be solved with fisticuffs. I believe I will be victorious in this regard.

                        I've never seen anybody so happy to be nadkicked as that white belt.

                        Maybe that's the technique. Learn to be happy about nadkicks.

                            Hell yeah!

                            I sort of posted this up as a joke, and half because I'm desperate for something new.

                            I could probably end up earning some life experience then make it into a Bullshido Diary.

                              I almost think I recognize the shopping center...if it's what I'm thinking though the school's in Germantown or some equally whitebread region of Memphis, but I left a long time ago.

                              Still, you have to go, because I have this mental picture of the students yelling, "Kick me in the jimmy!" before receiving their testicular trauma, and you have to find out for me if it's accurate.
                              It seems to me that the Sanjuriu Martial Art is not in guestion, but, rather the character of Mr. Galt.
