Re: Aikido Frauds

The site above is a good example of the certificate madness that originates in some of these organizations. The amount of paper generated between dad and son would just about build a house. It's interesting to note that the son created the jiu jitsu alliance which recognizes the dad and awards him a bunch of his certificates. I guess they want to keep it in the family. Then there's the master's degree in reality defense awareness or something like that.

Now to be perfectly honest, some of the videos weren't half bad-decent breaking stuff. Although the take downs could use less of the bouncing-looks like bing bing richochet rabbit. I don't know if they were trying to imitate Ali or what. I did find it funny in the one take down demonstrated the uke (master) told the attacker when to kick.
