Re: Golden Center Aikido for your pleasure

My comment was not intended to be judgemental. Sorry if it came across like that. Everyone is entitled to their own practise. You made no statement whatsever whether the vids show techniques that are effective, or whatsoever. That is however how my eyes look at Aikido, because that has my interest (there is some material of my teacher Alain Peyrache, should it interest you, perhaps you would like to take a look at it).

I responded to the fact that you yourself said what is shown on the vids is not actual practise. To me that is not consistent: you do Aikido always in the same sense/intention. There is no morning Aikido, evening Aikido, wednesday Aikido, or Aikido just for fun.

BTW I have always wanted to be a bad ass...

In a real fight:
* If you make a bad decision, you die.
* If you don't decide anything, you die.
Aikido teaches you how to decide.
