Huh.
I train routinely with four (openly) homosexual women... their Aikido seems to work just as well as the Aikido of heterosexuals of their respective ranks.

Look at the title, read the FAQ - its a joke, taking the piss. More like annoying answers to annoying questions than any deep meaningful insight into whatever.

Q. No seriously, I can't...
A. Just keep training

Q. But..

What about...

What are those black dresses you wear?

Why is the sword wooden?

Is Aikido a good place to meet chicks?

Is there any way to get my black belt faster?

Where is the bloody ki and who lost it?

I do not appreciate the insult. Many people have this question, as it is a serious matter. Take caution in your tone!

I would've taken caution in my tone, if only this wasn't a 2-year-old post in a "Humor" forum and if the title wasn't an advance warning to the "quality" of the content.

It's really not worth blowing up over.

Re: Unofficial Aikido forum FAQ (rated R for immature)

my reply was meant to be sarcastic, but I think that it's important to remember that not all "jokes" are universally funny. You can't just insult someone (or someone's friends) over and over and then say, 'hey, it was just a joke!' and expect them to keep on believing it.

'course, I'm from California and I know the rest of the country is a little bit backward wrt this subject.

Re: Unofficial Aikido forum FAQ (rated R for immature)

Q: How do you apply kuzushi and technics to a resisting opponent?
A: Pull out your gun and force your opponent to do what you want.


*SIGH*. Seriously, if anyone could really help me with this question.

There are two aspects to Kuzushi balance (shikoku) and breath (kokyu-ho) both of which need to be present to work manipulate a resisting uke along his ki lines.

If you want to get specifics of this, and you can make it down to Los Angeles, try looking up a few of the seniors students at Aikido Doshinokai Dojo, in Culver City. http://www.doshinokai.com

Don't forget to tell them I sent you and that you request the full treatment....

Laurent,

Yes, Aikido Doshinokai and Aikido Ikazuchi dojos are both Matsuoka Sensei's dojos. If you have a chance, please stop in and visit. Tell them I recommended that you train with Eddy Olandj, or Josh Gold and that you are seeking information on Kuzushi as it relates to Kokyu-ho and shizen-ni... I am sure you have an interesting and awesome practice. Let me know how it goes. If you tell me in advance there is a good chance that I may be in town for a visit, as I visit often.

Enjoy your time abroad.

Gentlemen, please don't hesitate to continue your discussion regarding kuzushi in Laurent's own thread about kuzushi.
