Sorry to be off topic, but if an aikido dojo incorporates kickboxing into its practice, doesn't that make it not aikido anymore, but a form of MMA?
Nope, it's called "playing the piano." At least in Mikey's world.
Nah.... it's called "Ueshiba was too dumb to include kickboxing into Aikido" in Avery's world. It's not "Mikey's" fault, it's OOOoooosheeeba's fault. Ask name-player Avery.

Actually, I just looked back at Avery's last posts. It's fairly obvious that he's taking shots and is used to getting away with it. Fairly low-life, and obviously trying to pick at fight, although not in the league as Justin Smith. Whaddya think, Ricky? This is the kind of guy that makes almost all other martial artists in other disciplines snicker about the art you claim to value. Think someone like Avery should be representing you and Ueshiba's art? In fact, do you think Avery is representative of what you think an Aikidoist should be, as opposed to the people you try to display in your sig? Do you think anyone should say something to clowns like Avery, or should they be allowed to represent what Ueshiba spent his life perfecting? Makes a good debate, doesn't it? See if you can deal with the issue itself and give it a clinical dissection. Pretend I'm the Ghost of Ueshiba and argue to me how Avery is representative of Aikido.

Re: Called out.

Mike,
I think a forum is a poor place to attempt identifying representatives of aikido.
I learned aikido in one dojo, from one sensei, in the most beautiful place in the world. My 'representative' of aikido is Iwao Yamaguchi. Everyone's aikido experience is different. I had the very highest quality aikido, and aikidoka at my doorstep for 8 magnificent years.
Sadly, that is gone for me so I muddle around practicing and teaching the things I learned. I don't know what else to do.

Now, what was that issue you wanted me to dissect again?
Oh yeah,

Re: Called out.

Thread closed due to, yet once again, too many attacks of a personal nature.

Can we please, please, please try to restrain ourselves in the future?
