    Interesting video, It is too bad that there wasn't translation available. Does anyone know who the Japanese instructor is? Was this filmed as part of a documentary ?

    gov't shutdown

    You Think? (sarcasm intended) :) And A new Congress. Author Peter Schweizer came out with a book titled :"Throw them all Out". Very appropriate. Maybe they should live as the "regular" folk they claim they represent: reduce the salary to "regular" wage, about 40,000 a year, not be privy...

    The Grandmaster

    I saw the trailer for the recently released movie championed by Martin Scorsese, The Grandmaster. It stars Tony Leung, Ziyi Zhang, Cung Lee.

    I was thinking about this post after watching a video where Seagal called Gene Labelle a D*****bag. Hardly the words a "buddhist follower" would utilize when regarding a fellow human being. Not pleasant to hear and very disappointing. A lot of respect has been lost and I feel is indicative in...

    gov't shutdown

    I was under the impression that a gov't shutdown meant a total closing of all but the most essential agencies. Today, I learned that only 13% of the government is actually not operating!? This is hardly the apocalyptic event facing mankind as depicted in the media. It was interesting to...

    How effective would aikido be in a cage or ring?

    There are some interesting observations in your post regarding the understanding and exploitation of the attack. The training under different rules of engagement is an excellent point. I believe that a practitioner, regardless of his style, will react the same way in a street fight as he had...

    How effective would aikido be in a cage or ring?
