My money is on the Yeti.

The MMA-ist would try to shoot - and get stepped on.

The Judoka would try to break balance - and get stepped on.

The Aikidoka would keep ma ai and try to apply kotegaeshi to the Yeti's foot - and get stepped on.

Then the Yeti gets his own website and gets a host of groupies who think Yeti-jutsu is the best style and start a forum on how they hate MMA, Judo and Aikido and anyone who does it .

I see a trend developing here.

Sure but then Larry invites the Yeti to Trinidad for a challenge match.

Yeti dies of heat frustration.

Larry steps on Yeti.

Larry gets the groupies.

I read the thread and found it all quite amusing. Anyway, how can anyone take that person seriously when he can't even spell randori. He spelled it wrong at least twice, two different ways.

I really didn't want to read the whole thread, but I couldn't stop myself. When I clicked on several of their profiles, I realized that my dog tags have been around longer than most of Sherdog's posters. So I'm not really bothered by their comments based on their vast experience in life, let alone martial arts.

And yes, once I got past the poor grammar, logic, and general vulgarity, I wound up examining how I train...but I will happily continue with Aikido.

If they REALLY want to test how tough they are, they can come to work for my employer and we'll be happy to send them to Iraq or wherever we may go next...sigh...it's time for a lot of us to come back home and play with our own kids anyway.

Regards, Brad

Because I am sadistic and I like to inflict pain on people's wrist?

Re: "I Hate Aikido" Thread

It is cheaper than going to a chiropractor.

I like the ice cream idea.
