    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Look at this Aikido.

    I found this guy a few months ago during my obligatory newbie STYLE VS. STYLE obsession.



    While it's certainly not the Second Coming of the Gracie Challenge, I think that this is basically a positive thing for Aikido. I guess it looks like ugly Judo, but I lack the perspective to be knowledgeable the mystical and secretive arts of grappling.

    So here's the part where you all get to laugh at me and tell me how stupid and wrong I am.

    Message to all karateka:
    Next time your fighting an aikidoka, trying PUNCHING HIM IN THE FACE.
    Not the ribs. The face.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    So I guess aikido is worth studying if you're worried about Shotokan clinchwork.

    A traditional shotokan takedown usually involves waiting for your opponent to slip on the dust-covered gymnasium floor while throwing a hook kick or high roundhouse.
    That was my experience when I did it, at least.

    so aikido works if-

    everyone you fight is about 20/30 pounds lighter than you

    has no grappling ability

    you only use ugly looking bad judo

    cool!

    You know, I am a firm believer that "alive training" is not pretty, but goddamn hell...this is, in short, retarded. The pretentious asshole in the glasses IS the shitty assed problem with some martial arts. That being said, I am excited that they are training. Now punch each other in the faces!
