• Looking for a good practical name for a scissors sharpening business I'm starting.?

    The business will sharpen the type of scissors used by hair stylists. I'm not looking for some cutesy smart sounding name. Just a name that can be remembered, is professional, and my customers will remember. Keep in mind that it also must be a name that is not already being used by some company.

  • Does anyone else see this too?

    Anyone that has been active here will quickly see a trend that the younger guys have set in concrete in their minds. That is the mistaken belief that the most powerful, kick, punch, ...etc is the best and always better than less powerful ones. Have you seen this misunderstanding of the real world too?

  • Did any of you know Jim "Rocky" La Rocco the Isshinryu Master?

When I moved to Georgia in 2008, La Rocco Sensei quickly became my best friend here. He was always open to my input on training and often had me share my training even though it was not Isshinryu. The martial arts world lost a great man in his passing. I was just wondering how many of you knew him or had heard of him. Those that knew him were lucky. He will be missed by many people both within the martial arts and those that were not. ...

  • Does anyone like this new Y/A Interface?

    I find it harder to navigate and visually overwhelming. It has improved nothing and is just different. I am a programmer and see no reason for this new format. It worked fine and was easy to navigate. Does anyone here like the new Yahoo?

    We have a few here that think themselves more knowledgeable than the guys with much more experience.

    We have a few here that think themselves more knowledgeable than the guys with much more experience. They profess to tell it like it is and not act politically correct as the seniors are accused of being. They attack anything that is not mma and freely answer anything that is posted about TMA. Yet I find I'm being blocked from viewing or answering their recent questions. It seems that they feel it is OK to comment on my and other's questions, yet are closed minded to the point of blocking us from answering their questions. What do you think of people who can post whatever they want, but prevent others from doing the same? When someone posts a question shouldn't it be to get other people opinions? most of the members in this section except that if they post a question they will get answers they don't like or agree with. Most people take that and don't exclude answers from more experienced members.

  • Do you know why today few martial arts schools do this....?

    It is obvious (at least to those of us that have studied the martial arts a long time) that most martial arts schools do not teach all of their style. In fact most teach only basics.

I ask this to make people think about things rather than listen to the incorrect statements a few Mal-contents here spout all the time. I have what I believe are the main reasons for this, but I'd like to hear what others think. I'll post my reasons, which I think are reasonable in a day or so.

  • When did Steven Seagal begin to teach Aikido in Japan?

    Avery time I read about Seagal it says he was the first Westerner to begin to teach Aikido in Japan. Many say that he was the first Westerner to open a dojo in Japan. I'm not sure he was the first westerner to open his own class in Japan. The American that inherited the style I study, Albert C. Church, was in Japan from 1967 till May of 1969. ... show more
    Avery time I read about Seagal it says he was the first Westerner to begin to teach Aikido in Japan. Many say that he was the first Westerner to open a dojo in Japan. I'm not sure he was the first westerner to open his own class in Japan. The American that inherited the style I study, Albert C. Church, was in Japan from 1967 till May of 1969. He opened a dojo in Japan during that period. What I can't say is exactly when, but is was between 1967 and 1969. What I can find about Steven Seagal never says when he began to teach his on his own in Japan. I did find something that said he received his Shodan in 1974. If that is correct then he was not the first Westerner to run his own dojo in Japan. First degree black belt is not an instructors rank in any legitimate martial art. so it appears that Seagal could not have begun to teach for at least some years after 1974. Does anyone have reliable information saying what year Seagal began to teach in Japan?

I reported a profile that clearly is nothing but advertising for the members business. Anyone that bothered to look at the person profile would see that. Instead YA sends me a message telling me that they need me to supply more information for them to investigate the profile. That is totally stupid. Even if it made sense, what else could I possibly give them that the profile does not have already? Anyone else had this problem reporting profiles?

I'm wondering if they don't think before they throw that word out there? Or do they have a much different idea of what the word mastered means, than the word means to me. Or perhaps they have a double set of standards for the word....
