Re: Multiple attackers, using their idea of what is happening against them

Great googly moogly. You're trying to equate not being stabbed/cut from a weapon with "evading" in football? Really?

Or is this just another example of "cherry picking". You seem to be in a habit of doing that in this thread and then denying it and saying it isn't important to your usage of cherry picking.

How about doing the research and actually coming up with valid points regarding Ueshiba's aiki as compared to Hein's "aiki". I say Hein's "aiki" because he has yet to explain where he came up with his definition. There are tons of information out there on Ueshiba's aiki and how Ueshiba defined it. The two do not match.
I think the relevant common theme in both videos is that opponents intent is manipulated.
Of course the goal in one case is to score points and in the other to subdue an attacker, somehow I think this is as relevant as that one video is in colour, and the other not. You decide what you focus on.

Naturally the founder employs various strategies in the Asahi film including the direct entry you pointed out. The examples I chose weren't meant to imply that the strategy demonstrated in them are in any way exclusive to anything else. I think that that is different from the conclusion you chose draw from http://members.aikidojournal.com/pri...hei-ueshiba-2/

Regarding "How about doing the research", please consider Russell's teapot ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russell's_teapot ).

By the way, as english not my first language, what does "Great googly moogly" means?
