"SENSEI'S HATE HIM!

IMPROVE YOUR AIKIDO USING THIS ONE WEIRD TRICK!"

Are we really reduced to clickbait?

Nope. Not clicking. This is meant to be a forum for sharing. Here.

Re: A simple tip to improve your techniques at training.

You can not have your cake and eat it as well.., if it is unacceptable to cut and paste material from the Aiki Webs 'columns' forum to another location, why would I do the same in reverse here..?

As for the insult re 'click bait'. I can assure you that I make no money at all from any blog post, nor would I ever seek to, I have already given an open explanation posted in here of what my blog is for and how it is used to promote Aikido in general. If you don't like it, simply don't read it nor click on any links provided...

Re: A simple tip to improve your techniques at training.

Ben, there's a difference between copying an excerpt of your own content, or writing an abstract of same, and wholesale copying of someone else's content. It's too bad that you feel "click bait" is an insult, but remember that clickbait doesn't imply you're getting paid, not in the least. It implies that you're using a sensational or provocative teaser to drive traffic to your site, which would certainly appear to be the case here. If the shoe fits...

Now, yes, it's an external aikido blog, and that is the purpose of this particular forum, so no one's going to kick if you don't post ALL the content here...but I don't think that's what Janet was reacting to. I think there's a nice comfortable middle ground between clickbait and posting everything here. I had (I believe) the same reaction: no, I'm not gonna click based on a deliberately provocative one-liner. I know it's a tried and true technique, but frankly, it feels manipulative. Give me more than that single line, tell me what you're going to tell me about, something like "Blah de blah method really can take your aikido from good to better - read about what I tried and what I found out" is more likely to get me to click.
