Dead Zone

For those fans of the TV series the Dead Zone (psychic). Aikido was mentioned and a couple of techniques performed in the last show on donating blood. Did not know where to put this so I started a new thread.

Did anyone see Sunday's episode of The Learning Channel's Top Ten Show??

Feb. 8th, TLC had a show called Top Ten in which they countdown various things in the world and rank the top ten. (obviously) This last Sunday's show was the Top Ten Martial Arts.

Tae Kwon Do was ranked 7th, Aikido was ranked 6th, Ninjitsu (http://www.winjutsu.com/) I believe was 5th.

Number One, according to TLC's little poll, was Shoalin Kung Fu. There is a geniuine Shoalin monk in New York City who is teaching there. Very impressive.

All the same, I think I'll stick with Aikido. I just don't see myself climbing trees or busting up bricks or walking on nails anytime soon.

I believe the episode was "Precipitate".

That was so funny. I saw the guy duck under the big bad bald man's punch and the first thing I thought of was "Aikido?" then he did some odd wrist bend. When they said the guy did Aikido my wife and I just looked at each other and laughed.

It was Sundays show something about a blood transfusion after he was in an accident.

Yeah, the kotegaeshi was pretty sloppy but at lease aikido got some billing.

It's left-handed kotegaeshi to a right hand lapel grab, then once the arm is extended and "uke" is screaming in pain, "nage" pivots to the back while getting the "uke"'s arm down, grabs him by his clothes on the back, and continues "uke"'s forward trajectory by tossing "uke" forward.
