In General New forms of epic fail Entry Tools Rate This Entry

So three guys come in the dojo and want to see Aikido against boxing attacks, which are presumably realistic. Boxing was again demonstrated to be epic fail.

I don't get why so many people invest so much time in trying to make every technique work against jabs and stuff because boxing really isn't that effective. There's this thread about doing kote gaeshi from a punch. You may as well invest time in figuring out how to fight a swordsman with a spoon when you have a gun.
I hate to get philosophical but the mentality of "I will do this technique" is imposing your will rather than creating harmony. He does whatever and you harmonise with it. In the case of a boxer he throws a jab which is deflected from your guard and then you shake him warmly by the throat as you tenchi nage him through the floor.

I digress, I have been drinking after all. So yeah, boxing was quickly demonstrated to be an interesting but pointless way of doing things. Occasionally we get thai boxers in and they try their stuff and we bounce them up and down the mat and they never come back after that.
