Personally, i was lucky for finding a karate school with a teacher who is progressive. But 90% of uechi-ryu sucks so much ass; it's funny.
But my teacher wants his students to spread out and teach and open thier own schools that have a progressive outlook on karate(ie cross training, no stupid bowing, clinching, grappling, kata modification, open interpretation of kata) trying to fix the damage done by bullshido-ists.
Aikido, i look at it, and i think it has so much potential, but i have not seen ONE school that actually does anything worthwhile during training.
Is it worth learning something good like BJJ or MMA and then learning Aikido with the soul purpose of trying to fix it?
Would it work? Would people come to such a school?
Anyone ever tried something like this?
Is it worth the effort?
