    I agree with you on this. I haven't trained Aikido, but when I've visited Aikido schools or see it on TV, part of me says "I wish I didn't know better." I don't think this is limited to Aikido either. I think this mentality is the primary draw of most TMAs. As far as I know, TaeKwonDo is still the most practiced Martial Art in the USA. I think deep down every TKDer is just waiting for the opportunity to decapitate someone with a 360 spinning butterfly kick.

    That said, if there is a draw for you, and you have the means and opportunity, take some Aikido. There's no harm in learning the art. The harm only comes from thinking that it makes you unfuckwithable.

    welcome to Bullshido Ghostbushid0,
    I too, feel the longing for matrix-rules-earth. That's what drew me to tma (Kung fu forms), before a guitarist friend took me to a SanShou/SanDa gym.

    you should do what makes you happy. If you know what you're getting into, go for it.

    I do Aikido because I enjoy it. If that's enough for you, do it!

    You can always do something more fighty as well.

    I've been doing Judo for a little less than five years but my desire to do Judo goes back at least ten years. My initial grappling experience was through BJJ over ten years ago. Then, I ended up coming across one of those Judo vs. BJJ threads on rec-martial-arts and it peaked my interest in Judo. I didn't know what it was but when I researched it I felt compelled to do it. It took years before I could start but I knew Judo was for me.

    It sounds as if it's the same with you regarding Aikido. Don't let it concern you if Aikido is great "for da str33t". It should not matter. I used to rag on other martial arts but I don't anymore. People who spend a lot of time and effort in a martial art do so because they love it and not because they have some illusions of being a great fighter. Well, most don't anyway. If you find enjoyment from Aikido, Tae Kwon Do, Kenpo, or Five Animal Kung Fu then who cares what anyone else thinks!
