    Oh my stars! I've never heard any of this before!

    You are going to lose people at statements like "I don't do aikido, but...." or that massive rant. Substance is good, but so is relevance. For someone who has 14 years experience in the martial arts, I would expect you to know better. Anyway, points about personal experience are fine, and interesting, in a comparative statement/argument. But hypothesizing and making authoritative comments about a subject you have little experience in is not a great way to be convincing (assuming the point of your post was to convince people about your beliefs on aikido). Has it occurred to you that people realize most gendai budo aren't primarily designed to make you a hardass warrior that can beat up every poor sap you come across? Arguing that aikido is a poor means by which to become a cage fighting warrior is kind of a moot point. Ueshiba literally designed his art of 'aikido' (after is was named aikido) it was literally deemed the 'art of peace' or the 'art of love.' There are MMA guys who ALSO train in aikido, but I doubt they think a reverse wrist lock takedown is going to give them many advantages in the ring....

    If you make a claim like this here on Bullshido, you're required to prove it.

    You have 2 days to provide proof of a fight record in an amateur or professional MMA organization. Failure to do so will result in a ban.

    A public retraction will also suffice since you're new.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    If nobody is going to say it i might as well. Aikido is too deadly for sport and is outlawed by sports authorities in fiftyeight states.
