    I had been a member of this board a couple of years back and left when it got wierd. Looks like little has changed other than the sarcasm and flaming is just going to be a little more subtle. Maybe I'll just quit going to any of the Martial Arts boards at all.:eusa_snoo

    You should not be wasting your time away from the computer . The only training that you need to be deadly can be done from your computer chair .
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    Both the Boxer and the Aikidoist would learn something positive, so Everybody wins! *virtual reach-around*

    This debate has already been settled in the latest Steven Seagal movie.

    Aikido's harmony extends its universal protection to buddhists as well.

    Not fair! Boxing isn't even a martial art!

    Let me tell you guys something, aikido was made for the battlefield of feudal Japan, where there were no refs, fouls, points, fight doctors and timed rounds. Yeah boxers have some pretty good conditioning becuase they train to make a fight last the distance. Aikido is a killing art. We know this is true becuase it was made for the battlefield of feudal Japan. The reason you won't find any Aikido in the ring is becuase real masters don't care for competion. Their skills aren't a sideshow for drunken yobs. Real fighting is not based on "skills" and "training" and "conditioning" but what goes on in the head. If you believe you can win you will win. Boxing doesn't teach you to kill, you touch gloves and shake hands after the fight, they didn't do that **** on the battlefields of feudal Japan. If you want proof that aikido would beat a boxer go to aikiweb or MAP and look up the anecdotes that have been collected on how effetive aikido is on the street. Just rember that the difference between boxing and aikido is that aikido was made for the battlefield of feudal Japan.

    AGREED, most boxers usually are naturaul fighters, alot of people who do martial arts are dont have natural fighting abilitie, but of course the better fighter will win but usually the fighter with more natural abilitie, such as toughness will win.
