The best way for him to prove his concepts are righ is to put them to the test.
As Rokas did.
Other way he is no more than other aikido master who talks, talks, talks and nothing more.


I am pretty sure the possibility of being attacked with the fists on the streets is much much higher than possibility of being attacked with the knife. Better for him to learn how to protect the jaw.
BTW I do not see the difference between breaking somebodys nose in "ritual combat" and breaking somebodys nose in "real fight".
Technique and damage is the same,
Why should he prove his concepts are true? Everybody should do things they believe are helpoful or enjoyable for themselves. Why should we prove anything to others? If they Day comes when he needs to use those skills for survival, then they are brought to test.

Exactly the same could be said for any branch of the martial arts - pick MMA, or Karate, Jujutsu, Wing Chun, whatever you like. Start searching online for videos and arguments for why their style is the best, and you will see exactly the same thing. We seek the evidence which supports our own belief systems. And it is worth remembering the real purpose of all these videos on YT is to make money from repeated views. The controversial arguments and viewpoints get the most views, and make the most money - don't be so easily fooled by the internet, it does not the represent the reality of life.
Not really.

There are quite a few arts that never seem to post online apologies for their stuff.

Aikido is not one of them. That's again part of the problem. "Aikido guys" aren't the world's best. They might be the most "all talk" art, but then again, Steven Seagal was tough, once.

The idea is that it is handy to know before someone tries to hurt you if your martial arts can defend you.

Really. Rouge Warrior is BS. Built like a tank, likes to talk about Aikido in real fight. Nobody ever seen him in this kind of test Rokas did.
Next one black hakama dude who can talk a lot and talk a lot and tak a lot.
And talk a lot.
And talk a lot.
And nothing more.

I really would like (without any malice) to see him in MMA club testing his solutions for MMA clinch he offers:

Nope. Noy everybody. Delusional maniacs, robbers, murderes, liars, rapists etc - the list of people who should not "do thing they believe are helpful and enjoyable for themselves" is very long.

And he should prove his concepts are true because he make them public and teach other people.

It appears that a lot you guys on here waste your time in petty arguments - why not just ignore these kind of things and just train, doing the things you enjoy. It makes more sense than arguing. What is the point? Do you think anyone really cares?

Most martial arts will not prepare you for the reality of a survival situation.

Do law-enforcement and the military send their recruits to martial arts schools?

Ever heard about Krav Maga, MCMAP, Sambo?
Even as I remeber some members of this forum used to train LEOs.
They probably offer all kinds of one-off workshops to LEOs, but is it something they continue to train in week-after-week, year-after-year?

THREAD LOCKED PENDING REVIEW

Please keep in mind going forward that style bashing, and bashing individual martial artists (whether they or youtubers or otherwise), is against forum policy.

Thank you,
