“The Martial Art of the Japanese Riot Police”
Really? A friend of mine has just been telling me about how he has just read a book about Aikido called Angry White Pyjamas, and how he now wants to study Yoshinkan Aikido. Apparently there is a school in Japan where you train alongside riot police for a year. So I did a google search and everywhere I look I see that Yoshinkan is the “martial art of the Japanese riot police”. Is that true? I mean, not knocking aikido, but you know it doesn’t get much respect from the MA community, so why are these tough bastards using it?
