Mike, don't you ever question statements like the one we're talking about in this topic? Didn't you hesitate to believe it when you first heard it?
What are you talking about??? I've questioned nearly all of your statements!!!
I could be wrong, but it seems to me that the man that related the story is an aikdo shihan. I would be very reluctant to imply that such a man was a liar. After all, I might meet him or one of his high-ranking students someday, and I wouldn't want to get one of my arms twisted out of my shoulder socket.
