    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    What can you learn in an hour of Aikido?

    Conversation after a Krav Maga Class with a LEO:

    Me: So how was your first class?

    LEO: Man, that was brutal.

    Me: You coming back?

    LEO: Yeah, it's a really great workout.

    Me: Well, we also offer Brazilian Jujitsu, Filipino Martial Arts and Western Martial Arts.

    LEO: Swordfighting isn't my thing.

    Me: Really now? Swinging a sword around on the street would be totally applicable for self defense. (Author's note: Just ask Phil Elmore).

    LEO: Naw, I'm a DC police officer, if someone fucks with me like that, I'll just shoot him.

    Me: Well, we also offer Law Enforcement DT training.

    LEO: Man, this isn't anything like what we learned.

    Me: What?

    LEO: One lesson here is more than anything we learned at our entire time at the academy. We got like like an hour of compliant training in a classroom with 30 guys in it.

    Me: What did you learn?

    LEO: Really basic DT, mostly wristlocks. (Read: Aikido based training)

    Me: What?

    ~*~*~
    So, my question to Bullshido is as follows:

    What can you learn in an hour of totally compliant Aikido training that would be applicable for self defense?

    Nothing. 1 hour of noncompliant BJJ training isn't enough for self defense either. Training is a continuous process. You gotta keep going back to be able to adequately defend yourself. The aikido bit is too easy though. i'm not even going there.

    Firstly, as an aikidoka, I say "**** you all!" before you all get started.

    That said... You could learn:

    • Nothing
      a variation on that drum thing from karate kid 2
      a half decent katagatame whilst soaking up a couple of punches
      Some closing of distance on someone striking at you.


    Beyond that, (and one of those was mostly a joke) I'd say that hour would be better spent making sure you definitely know how your radio works.

    EDIT: I'd spend it learning how the 'list' function works on this thing

    I've always wanted to learn where I could gets some of those wicked akido trousers. But really, an hour of training in just about anything of value (whether or not aikido qualifies I'll leave to others) is only enough time to learn that you suck. Maybes an hours of aikido could get you started on ukemi?

    Some of my favorite bullshido threads begin when someone discovers that the police and regular military aren't highly trained h2h combat professionals who can kill a dozen terrorists single-handedly, with their nostrils. (Single-nostrilly?)

    I once organised a joint Aikido Judo seminar. We had two hours each.

    I got told that I had 'very good Aikido' by the 6th dan running it. Apart from that I didn't really learn much.

    Had fun in the Judo part though especially when Aikijokers tried to resist the Judo stuff to 'prove' it didn't work. That wen't badly for them.

    In one hour you could learn to tie a belt, bow and write a check.

    Had you made them take the hakama off for the judo bit?

    Of course they faired badly. So would Sampson have if you'd made him cut his hair before the session

    Nah onl6 the 6th dan had one on and he sat on a cushion in the corner of the mat and meditated, it was fucking weird.

    It was just funny really.

    They were just being pathetic. We were doing Okuri eri jime from seated back control and the guy was tucking his chin down and putting his hands up to defend whilst I was trying to help the others who were struggling to do it.

    I just slipped it into Juji gatame and put it on a little too hard.
