Supposedly Geese was mixmashing knowledge from different styles but he himself preferred to focus on techniques that had to do with [URL=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kobud%C5%8D]Kobudo styles[/URL]; Geese had this habit of killing guys proficient on certain styles, but I never really got to see if that was something in the lines of "testing yourself by offing your master like in Hokuto no Ken" type of deal. I remember Geese having contact with Aikido by the extension of Toji Sakata's rival (Blue Mary's grandfather, I think). If we want to further go into philosophy, the concept of "taking what's good and what works from where it works" is a very "american way of thinking" compared to old age purist who devote themselves religiously to a single discipline until they are the best (like Ryuhaku Todoh and by extension Kasumi (who also use a kobudo / aikijujitsu related art)). I always though that that was a good concept as it further cemented South Town as an EEUU city Speaking of (of course you don't care) Asuka and Jun also use aikijujitsu but they mix in soft karate form arts (or so I was told), thus they aren't "purist" at Aikido either. From what I remember about Aoi from Virtua Fighter, her whole storyline revolved around realizing that she wasn't good enough as it is and learning tricks for other disciplines to incorporate them into her style... Which (being a fan of old disciplines) I kinda found depressing, hahahaha [:2ch_haahaa:] As for the actual question about "are Kasumi's counter Geesecounters", well; while "martial art style wise" the question was answered properly, ingame wise the answer is yes, Kasumi's counters are referred by SNK guys as [URL=http://game.snkplaymore.co.jp/official/kof2002um/dr_neogeo/007.html]Atemi-nage (“当て身投げ”)[/URL], so yes. I wonder why most of our SNK discussions end up in martial arts baffle. Anyway, some Game41 matches [URL=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYH5Jz1pQkw]Vid 1[/URL], [URL=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXsNJ2S3KXw]Vid 2[/URL]. I haven't seen footage from Game41 ever since SS Tenka came out, har har. [:2ch_haahaa:] [i]edit :[/i] I didn't knew that Joe Higashi had a side job, [URL=http://www.mmcafe.com/cgi-bin/imageboard/file/1310713351.jpg]Now I wish I never knew[/URL]
