Hi Ron
I agree,as has been discussed on RMA a few times, it doesn't take much training to have some really good escapes on the ground against a doofus. Which is why I don't get why someone would want to spend years trying to get there by doing stand up aikido when they could get shown it in a day long seminar and save their aikido training for practicing vs the problems aikido was actually designed to solve. *shrug*
