The real point here is somthing that I have always said...
It is not about if he could beat anyone up or not or to "use" his training. It is the fact that he is involved with this type of thing!
He is a HORRIBLE representative for Aikido or any martial arts. The fact that he is a 7th Dan makes it that much worse! His character is the question here! Not about his movies or his ability to kick ass. He is embarrassing to Aikido.
The person is the problem for all of us.
