So a quote by Tamura attributing a comment to O-Sensei is, in your mind, a valid source for you to give direct attribution to O-Sensei? I think I'll pass on this one.
Do what you like. Its good enough for me.

What statistic did I claim? I offered a general opinion, and very clearly so if you'll go look, so your demand for a statistic is childish. there is no such statistic?

If you want to go on a public forum and take a stand implying you think western Aikido is pretty realistic martial arts, I'm not going to get in your way. It's puzzling why you want to argue that point, though, given the easily obtainable consensus. Go on rec.martial-arts and tell everyone that you think Aikido is an effective martial art, if you'd like to see where you stand. You'll probably get a reasonable number of direct personal challenges.
I probably would.

As I stated previously I couldn't give a monkeys for the opinions of those to ignorant to see whats in front of them.

Having read these contributions of yours and many of your other posts you may well fit that category.
