Inflict Damage from 20 Feet Away

http://www.fightfast.com/ShowView/deadeye/

"If your life is ever threatened by an attacker… no matter how big, mean, and ugly he is…
I want you to throw a standard paper clip — and embed it deep into his forehead from 16-feet away."

can someone tell me why we still train in Aikido, even though we could use this instead?

Who needs ki? Want to do damage from 30 yards away? Just don't wash your feet!

I think I'd rather just throw a rock.

The power of persuasive marketing... This better be some kind of joke.

I'm constantly whipping paperclips at my co-workers, but no matter how much I may wish them dead, I just can't seem to get the killing technique right.

Re: Inflict Damage from 20 Feet Away

Wonder if there are any bonus tips for shooting rubber bands, thumb-wrestling, or snowball fights?

Re: Inflict Damage from 20 Feet Away

More authoritative, with eye-popping illustrations, is Ricky Jay's "Cards as Weapons."

It's out of print, but available from used booksellers for about $250.

He can also throw a chinese take-out quality chopstick into a hollow core door pretty handily too....

Nah, Aikido has nothing to do with "Ki", it is just physics (mechanics).

This fruit on that web is a McDojo, Bad Budo, Bullshido, BuWan-Ka!

But yeah...thats ideal bullshido right there. I'm sure it'd be useful winning at darts in a bar/pub though

Re: Inflict Damage from 20 Feet Away

There's only one way to counter these deadly techniques, use the posture called 'Hold Wallet Tightly'.
