Great post, Kev!

Some people might "need" these stories to help motivate them in their practice. Or perhaps to keep "the mystic (sp?) of Aikido" alive.

Science have come a long way. Sure, they're not always accurate in these days eitherb but I've yet to see them beeing wrong about what speed a person can move by his own two feet...

I like this story as much as the next guy. But I can't believe that someone outran bullets fired directly at him. Especially when someone states that the bullets were fired with accuraracy (never mind my spelling ) so they'd hit if he'd stand still.

Like I said in my first post, It's too over the top to believe. And I don't need to believe them, to recognize o'senseis greatness.
