Re: AIKIDO - The way that doesn't work! - The Series
First of all I detest his vulgarity in his presentation. Believe me after years in the Marines I can use a particular four-letter word as a noun, verb, or adjective in dozens of ways. While I have that "skill" I don't exercise it in a public forum. I think a person can convey a good, strong message without all the profanity.
Secondly, his application is simply poorly done. No, it didn't work and that isn't a surprise to me. Done well with an attacker who isn't specifically expecting that response is usually effective.
I will grant that some aikido techniques aren't as effective as others in an actual "combat" situation, but all of this is simply incorrect in my opinion.
