All I am asking is who have you trained under that "actually does".
Not that Dan needs defending, but if you do your homework on e-budo or aikiweb you'll figure out who he trained under
You're a smart guy afterall, I'm sure you don't need hand holding

I'm willing to go so far as to say you spontaneously came up with some spectacular stuff, but then we haven't seen you do anything.

Or should I say the vast majority of us haven't seen you do anything. I know there is lots hearsay, about this fellow or that who has seen you, but I don't know any of these people, neither does any one else.
Sure that's like talking about your instructor Tim Cartmell over here in Japan
Most BJJers over here would be like..."who dat??? "
Same thing dude. That doesn't mean that Tim isn't accomplished or skilled, or doesn't have internal skills. Simply means that no one over here has met/heard of him.
The same thing goes for yourself and Dan, Mike or Ark.

Most good athletes I've met do very well in the martial arts.
"Martial Arts" is to vague Chris.
Here's an example:

Wushu performers are excellent athletes, they also practice "martial arts." Does that mean they possess the skills that Mike, Dan or Ark have? (Even the training methods look similar to what we do externally)
Uh. No. And that's pretty cut and dry.
(And that's from experience, having met/felt people, not talking out of my ass)
