    Didn't fully appreciate this was YMAS, and have inadevertantly posted 100% serious responses. Sadly, I fear my future responses will be similarly sincere

    As such, here is an amusing picture of a blender bicycle to make up for it before I go to bed.



    That's right, its a blender AND a bicycle.

    In the thread title and in the OP maybe?

    Do you feel so threatened by the idea that there are entirely combat ineffective Aikidoka out there that could probably survive falling off the back of a truck better than your average kickboxer? I doubt it.
    Ideas are not things I usally feel threatening.

    Therefore why would you be adverse to the idea that time is spent in MMA on breakfalling? I think there are definitely people out there training JJ and MT, but spending little time on breakfalling. It is primarily this kind of person that I think could benefit from an hour a week of breakfalling practice.
    I find 1 hour a week of breakfalling practise excessive. The niche you are targetting would be better served with 1 hour of judo practise under competent instruction. Uchikomi: ten reps, the last throwing uke, rinse and repeat. Last 15 min of randori. Shower and beers. See you next week.

    So clearly, we agree about that.

    Well, I'm never going to suggest that Ukemi alone is comparably effective to Judo training, I just think that there's a financial opportunity for Aikido masters to become safety experts :)

    The answer, as usual, is DO JUDO.

    Getting rid of all the softcocks who seem to infest Aikido dojos the world over.

    Introduce some kind of minimum sign up requirements like:
    Be able to do more than 20 press ups
    Be able to talk to a girl about something she actually wants to talk about
    Laugh at offensive jokes
    Be able to tell one good dirty joke
    Have at least 2 funny sex anecdotes
    Have at least 4 funny drunken antics anecdotes

    That would be a pretty good start.

    Random non-fighting safety was something that I felt I got out of doing systema (probably the main thing, besides conditioning).

    No, their schedule changed around so I decided to try out something else while still new. Since I started training with my current teacher I've been content to just go there. Jeff's classes were a lot of fun though,and very physically challenging. It was like a boot camp mixed with recess for adults.
