Re: Farewell Aikido
face it, what the OP posted is essentially the equivalent of going up to a bunch of sumo guys and telling them that they're fat - to pick a fight, of course. why else would someone post in a dedicated aikido forum that they're quitting? to inspire others to quit? he would have been better off joining the anti-aikido brigade on bullshido.
so the OP wants a fight that he can't find in aikido. generally i'd wish him luck in his future kajukenbo/muay thai/bjj endeavours, but really i just want to tell him to put down the ufc dvds and go eat another twinkie.
