Re: Golden Center Aikido for your pleasure

I stand corrected when you say to have made statements about effectiveness. I have just become just as bad as the others I am afraid.

Practise or not, like I said earlier: there is no morning Aikido, no evening Aikido, no wednesday night Aikido, just Aikido always. When you allow yourself to slack for whatever reason you are off the Path. That is why I said it is not consistent.

I would be interested to know what you think of Alain Peyrache (or Tamura Sensei for that matter). Alain has some promotional vids (stills and very short movies) but at least give an impression. Tamura Sensei has much more material available.
Now I am not telling you this to convince you, merely to show perhaps a quite different approach. I am sure others may provide teachers of similar quality.

Lastly, like Henry said respect your audience. Also the ones that do not respond...

In a real fight:
* If you make a bad decision, you die.
* If you don't decide anything, you die.
Aikido teaches you how to decide.
