    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Did you know aikido=jujitsu???

    So, I was looking around YouTube for some aikido vids, just to see what the range of interpretations were when I came across this:


    I've been watching this back and forth between two guys arguing about aikido. One guy states, in no uncertain terms, that aikido is jujitsu and is totally effective in self-defense and the other guy is arguing that aikido is not jujitsu and that it doesn't translate into an effective self-defense. Is one more full of bullshido than the other? What do you think?

    That video has been around here before. Last time it was called an aikido vs judo vid though.



    Regardless, the clip is the worst possible example of one style vs another, the JJJ/judo guy is completely compliant, it is a demo video and nothing more. If you want to argue aikido vs anything find one video of a professional fighter using it.

    Edit: Check out the sweet throw at 40 seconds, Judo can't pull of anything like that!

    I think you should never run up to shake hands with that little Aikido dude.

    I agree...it's a huge fail at trying to demonstrate any effectiveness on the part of aikido.

    Obviously a demo, as many have said; furthermore, as has often been suggested, it looks like a pure aikido demo—not even a demo of “something else vs. aikido”. The one bereft of magic pants looks very much like an aikidoka to me: The ready stance for one, very side-on with a hand held open and vertical well out in front (as if to invite a wrist grab? I don’t know). Then, too, the behaviour of running heedlessly at tori is something that many aikidoka seem to rehearse a great deal… Finally, the way the uke goes so strongly and smoothly, with overcommitment into ukemi without ever a pause or stutter—yeah, aikido-on-aikido demo.

    Nothing to see except a variable but invariably misleading video title. I suppose people who upload YouTube videos just assume that no hakama = no aikido.
