Re: Klingon Martial Art
This discussion is the most fascinating I've read here in months.
"Its all in the motivation. If I just happen to be able to fight off an invader in my home bacause I know how to handle a Stage Prop effectively, then this glorified Dance Form becomes Self-defense.
Since every aikido technique I've ever learned was choreographed and I am expected to figure out, in a period of several years, how to apply it in a self defense situation, I really don't see the difference."
I think that if this is true, then I can't claim to see a difference either.
