The dullard who merely follows without testing nor questioning limits is doomed to be one of many sheep. You can see them daily on your drive to work. Thats my take, see ya in the jungle!

Re: Aikido no good for self defense??

Sorry... is a sign of weakness, dont be. Just read critcally, and try to think about what is said as opposed to only offering rebuttal. As in a promotion test, if you screw up on technique, and by facial expression alone,everyone will know it-you let them know it. Just move on and learn from your experience. I mean this respectfully Tony. My post was to dovetail into George's insight of the idea of a "self"and going for the ridding of that so the technique is in the forefront. Not a "me". Bruce Lee's the Tao of JKD makes this point and it absolutely makes sense, on paper and in the third dimension.

tony ,i think what mr.vanhee is talking about is consistent with the fact that bruce lee and many others had strong interest in what people like j krishnamurti espoused.that listening defiles self centered thought ,the main obstacle to pristine action .and listening to your own breath would fundamentally bring you to a dimension beyond thought which would make your actions better.thoughts that arise should be observed with indifference and pass by.no happy no sad no trying no not trying.
