No No my good man wher0001 I never said he was a puss, just a ridiculous douche you can kick all kinds of ass and still be a douche!! I just think Segal takes himself WAY too seriously! I’m verry much aware the guy is dedicated to his M.A. and a major aikido player and poster boy!
That being said I still do not believe ANY aikido master would whoop up on a decent mma guy because of the multiple dimensions of mma. aikido being one dimesion of the martial arts world is questionable for effectiveness against a multi faceted martial arts player. I have watched a bunch of laugh worthy staged videos on many art forms so im not just targeting segal or aikido, I feel that any one person who believes a single discipline is teh deadly is full of shit!!!
How do you prove naysayers wrong check out the gracie way. Don’t get me wrong I’m no gracie jock rider, I think the wat they proved bjj as being a verry legitamate facet was verry onpoint. people doubted, they had the chance to prove them wrong and when they lost and said "well I didn’t use this super deadly 5 finger death punch that could have killed you with no effort"they were told for the betterment of this combat form please use it they either did and were shut down or didn’t and looked like tools.
Now that we all know importance of ground fighting we’ve started cross training which is far more effective than just aikido or boxing or bjj or… I wasn’t speaking a money wins it situation just a hey let’s test theory against theory in a respectable real situation of stylevs. styles!
Anyway we are officially thread jackers so sorry about that JGA like I said do it if you need the credits just don’t believe the hype guys that know aikido have said in this thread street use skeptical so it is what it is! All respectfully said of course
