Oh for god sake how much more of this nonsense is there going to be on this forum this week......a karate guy can beat an aikido guy and an aikido guy can beat a karate guy. It depends on the fighter and the circumstance. You don't see an aikido guy getting hit because it's rare to see a real aikido fight. Mostly it's all demos where the partner throws themselves to the floor when touched. That or Steven segal movies.
