    I Just Wanted to Let You Guys Know,..

    Wow, tough crowd. It just goes to show you, no good deed goes unpunished.

    Where Am I?

    I'm familiar with Wally Jay and Small Circle Jiujutsu. I currently study Kali, aka arnis, and am also familiar with the technical similarities with aikido. In fact it should make a nice segue as I plan to transition to aikido at some point.

    Where Am I?

    I'm lost now. All I'm saying is I just took a special training session in aikido. Not jiujutsu, aikido. If you're saying it wasn't aikido because of the striking, I guess we must agree to disagree.

    Where Am I?

    OK, well it wasn't jiujitsu, traditional or Brazilian. It was mainstream aikido. I speak Japanese, and know the difference.

    They used a lot of atemi. He even said true aikido is 99.9% atemi. I'm not sure if it was Ueshiba who removed striking, although a lot of dojos teach it that way.

    The rescue op is temporarily suspended, but I don't think it's for four days. In fact, Day 3 of the operation will probably begin any time now.

    Is this legal?

    As someone who used to work on the other end of the process, I can tell you that this is not exactly a new idea. A lot of the pre-paid envelopes would come in empty, just to cost the company the postage. Some had surprises, like other company's ads. Some got even more creative; I'll let your...

    I appreciate that. I'm more concerned with your feelings at the moment, though.
