Re: No touch throwing or muppets in a circle?

This is excerpted from an email of Tony's and pretty succinctly summarizes his opinion of no touch throws:

" In all the years of Tomiki/Shodokan training as well as
other martial arts training I have yet to see a no touch throw
that people on AW are so happy to believe and delude
themselves to!!!!!" (more quote to follow)

Strong words, but Tony is very self defense oriented and it is very important, I feel to remind students that they should keep self defense in mind as any of us might need it some day... I'll look up Tony's quote on that.
