    Aikido at the 2010 beijing combat games

    I was doing a bit of research for a project and came across the 2010 Beijing Combat Games. I'd never heard of it before and it seems like something I might find interesting so I decided to look it up. The best description I found was actually a post on bullshido here. If you google it you'll get a bunch of badly translated Chinese sites.

    What's interesting is that on those badly translated Chinese sites, they mentioned aikido. Competitive aikido? Could I see something interesting?

    Well... no not really interesting. Although, it was kinda funny. Starting at 3:35 they demonstrate the aikido kick defense of...

    just kinda ignoring the kick...

    It was going to miss anyways. They also have scissor takedowns later on! ... and then uke does some sort of weird lying flat on the ground like a starfish thing...

    Anyways, just wanted to share that. By the way, the event includes lots of cool stuff like Judo, Muay Thai, Sambo, Boxing, Wrestling, Sumo even. All on a nice, shiny, and international venue. Does anyone think this could become interesting if it got more popular? It does offer some of the same full contact fun but with more of an olympic type atmosphere. Could develop nicely even with a few hakama wearers poking the air with sticks every now and then.

    Oh look. Another aikido thread.

    /expects this to end poorly/

    ...And this "hakama wearer" would easily decimate most Judo, Muay Thai, Sambo, Boxing, Wrestling, Sumo with a 2.45 shaku razorsharp shinken that I poke in the air.

    If you don't beleive me, you should ask this guy, he killed a badass Predetor with a sword and he didn't even have his hakama on !

    Ridiculous aren't they.

    Almost as amusing as Rudy Abel but without the possibility of an eargrind.

    :icon_cry: gah I'm sorry! I just wanted to start a thread about the combat games. I thought if I made fun of aikidoka people would think I was cool and accept me but really I was just trying to hide my own aikido interest :icon_cry: On some level I really wanted to see aikido work. I guess I should go back to newbietown and cry on my hakama. Will anyone ever forgive me?

    then your title should have just said, '2010 Beijing Combat Games'.

    aikido does work, its just its effectiveness in combat scenerios that varies.

    I for one would be intrested in finding out more about the 2010 Beijing Combat Games. Sounds kind of interesting. I typically don't mind watching Aikido videos as a lot of them have some pretty cool looking choreography but something was a bit lacking in this one but I am not to sure exactly what it is missing.
