Iriminage?

Donovin Darius was ejected in the fourth quarter for taking out Robert Ferguson with this clothesline after a fourth-quarter catch.

"Aikido has been a part of several professional football team's off-season training regimen for years now."

Benjamin.....I'd be curious where you found that information....and any teams you know of?

Thanks.

I know for a fact that the Raiders have used Aikido training, and I have heard from several sources about other teams doing the same.

After too long, I am rereading Ya gotta have Wa about Jpn baseball (now out of print). At least one of the teams discussed taught their players aikido.

(Others made their players go pray under waterfalls in the dead of winter. Several coaches practiced Zen and some made reference to Miyamoto Musashi.)

Re: Iriminage?

Cool, maybe it's a proper sport after all

In Aikido and The New Warrior there are baseball and basketball references.

You dont even have to bend people's wrists! To me Aikido's a set of principles, so can be applied to almost anything. Aiki golf, aiki counselling, aiki karma sutra, whatever... Ok, so I made the last one up.

Re: Iriminage?

Now we just need to get players to acutally use irimi/tenkan in-game and we will be set.

I've often thought that I would like to play rugby again after having 20 years of Aikido experience under my belt.

I think I could hit..er..tackle people alot better now. And of course, have them painlessly smash into the ground

The Raiders?!? Really? Well I must say that I've never seen them practice anything that remotely resembles Aikido. Their training camp was in the City of El Segundo and I was one of their field service engineerings and spent many a day at their training camp. Though I suppose I could have missed it.

My impression is that it wasn't part of regular practices, but more like some guys (I was told defensive linemen, but that could be wrong) as a squad doing some extra-curricular learning, outside of team practices. Could have been during offseason.

I don't know, that's just what I heard from a teacher.

Be polite. Be professional. But have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
