Something has occured to me that I think is quite beautiful.
When you look at long time aikido practitioners, they have really strong backs, shoulders and triceps. Because those are the muscles you use when you push yourself up from lying face-down.
They didn't get those by punching people, or lifting heavy weights, but by falling and getting back up every single time.

Man I accidentally stole the front to look at the Wing Chun tag but while I am here, I really do strongly recommend picking up a combat sport or martial art for those with trauma who can afford it / are physically able
It is really good exercise, plus the self confidence and security knowing how to fight and defend yourself bare handed can and has really made the difference. Also picking it up had actually cut most forms of dysphoria drastically.
Like if you want further opinions and stuff on shit, we have a year of karate, over a year of boxxing and muay thai kickboxxing, 3 months of aikido, 3 months of kendo, and have 3 weeks of Wing Chun Kung Fu. We've also done some Brazilian Ju Jitsu, but nothing worth commenting on since we only did 3 sessions due to our schedule not working.
You'll get different answers to the best / preferred martial art depending on who you ask, but as the number one combat nerd AND a host, I'd like to say everyone else in this system is wrong and I was right when telling everyone Wing Chun is where its at. Just saying.
Anyhow, Ill save the 500 page dissertation as to why westerner fighting / boxxing is stupid as shit and all the parts in our system that like it are also stupid as shit /affectionate

My recents posts have been getting lots of questions on how effective aikido is for fighting.
Over the course of almost 3 decades;
Well, you see I first started learning aikido for self-defense
After some time i sought to make my locks and throws as effective and practical in taking someone down.
After more time, I was imparting practical aikido self-defense as an instructor for Singapore Armed forces (SAF).
There after, I was more Interested in feeling and connecting with my opponent to understand myself and him better rather than mindlessly taking him down.
There after, on how best to groom and nature my students to a better individual and the benefits the lifestyle brings internally and externally.
Now.. I train in hopes of being of some use to my surroundings and not about fighting. The principles of Aiki- the way of harmony is applied daily and is highly effective. Just in a different manner, and not for senseless fighting.

Smart way to use kata techniques… And it’s variations… Yoseikan Budo tries to find the glue between boxing and grappling… not as easy as it looks ;)

lmao Kai's Aikido student flirting with him at lifting up her skirt while Kai was awkwardly not looking at her, like: "I can stop by. Just really quick." Alone? While I'm in there...alone?
