    Aikido.. The reality?

    No one is trying to sell you on Aikido or advertise it as some kind of super competitive fighting system, it isn't that. Aikido is its own thing, its not my entire system and it really shouldn't be anyone else's if they want to be a well rounded fighter. Aikido can add things to other martial...

    Aikido.. The reality?

    Yes, you would rather waste your time in a 90 page internet thread ranting about strip mall dojo advertising practices. My bad, I forgot how important your time is...

    Aikido.. The reality?

    Mhmm, thats a stretch by any imagination. Now you dont like teaching martial arts to kids? Or I suppose you will now argue that those BJJ classes for 8 year olds are churning out armies of lethal child soldiers and how a hundred pound woman is going to ground and pound a two hundred pound...

    Aikido.. The reality?

    Lol, read that again, its not claiming anything really, other than it works for people like kids, the elderly, women, etc and that its about more than fighting, looks fine to me. The problem here is you don't understand even the basic premise of Aikido, you should go watch the video I linked...

    Aikido.. The reality?

    I find it hard to believe you are getting lost here and no, you are not. Nor have you been discussing Aikido. You have been loudly screeching about some strip mall Aikido school you have beef with over a civil advertising dispute and then making strawman arguments you want people to play with...

    Knife work from a modernist approach

    Totally, plus most people aren't going to even understand their local use of force laws or have the requisite martial arts skill to protect that weapon if they are in close quarters. Most of police defensive tactics is split between arrest procedure and weapon retention for a reason. A guy in...

    Aikido.. The reality?

    Not really, you just don't understand the faintest hint of what you are talking about. Either that or you are just dedicated to constantly attempting to reframe the argument, which is itself the tactic of someone who is arguing in bad faith. Thankfully, I am not the only person here who has...

    Aikido.. The reality?

    BTW if you are coming into this thread right now for the purpose of talking about Aikido which is what the thread is supposed to be about, here is a pretty great talk on the foundational principles of what Aikido actually is: The other guys here don't actually do or have a background in...

    Aikido.. The reality?

    Sir, you are making far too much sense for this thread. What are you trying to do here?

    Aikido.. The reality?

    Most police defensive tactics courses have a good bit of Aikido mixed into them, Aikido is used by the Tokyo riot police and metro PD and they have a long history of bringing it to the states to teach here along with Judo/Karate. Now the complaint is "your Aikidoka is too big" gotcha.

    Aikido.. The reality?

    How does it feel to win an entire battle with the strawman you have been building? I find it hilarious that you are still arguing from an absence of evidence after complaining about it so thoroughly. You've been shown videos of "those people" participating in self defense situations, you just...

    Aikido.. The reality?

    I agree, just gawd that video is cringy... It's not even a good example of a weak Aikido schools black belt randori.

    Aikido.. The reality?

    You heard it here first folks, I hereby claim Judo for Aikido. Hanzou, I won't charge you royalties for the guillotine choke anymore.
