    Aikido fails both of these tests. If your goal is to get off the couch and get the blood flowing, maybe your club is fine. However, if you are taking it for a self defense purpose, you'd be better off running a couple of miles everyday(actually, if your goal is to get off the couch and get your blood flowing, running is probably a better alternative for that too).

    What it comes down to is that aikido relies on too much mysticism and hakama envy, and not enough quantifiable evidence of it working to help defend against assault.

    I trained in Daito-Ryu aikijitsu, and while from what I've read it was a better school than most, it still left me woefully unprepared for when I finally got into real grappling(judo & bjj).
    Thank you for youra reply :D most people tell me Aikido sucks, and when I ask them why they think what they do, they can't explain themselves. So thanks again for giving a legit response

    Aikido renders non-French-speakers incapable of spelling "grapefruit" in French.

    If OP took some sweaty, ape-like MA, he'd know it was "pamplemousse".

    Aikido as is commonly practised (read 99.99999%, regardles of what anyone tells you that they train the real) is it own worst enemy. As Omega put it (politely for him), a lot of it is theoretical bullshit that is irrelevant until you have the physical training to make it work. Throw in the over-publicised philosophy, and you tend to get 2 types of aikidoka - those who have never studied anything and want to spend their time justifying themselves ather than hard training, and fat mid-life crisis sufferers who want to feel good about themselves without putting in the effort.
    F*ck - can't count. There are 3 types - add in the japanophiles. The fucktards think they are learning something deeply profound and spiritual, becasue they learn things in a new language for them. These peopel are also the most likely to have wallhanger weapons, facial acne and the enitre Seagal back-catalogue.

    (Look at my style field - I train in aikido. I have my own reasons for doing so. I can never get over the first national seminar I went to - first partner asked me not to grip so hard as he had a sore wrist. Next training partner asked me to tone it down as aikido is not about trying to hurt each other).

    You forgot the fourth type. The person that angrily explains how all other <insert art > sucks, but the one they study is hardcore.

    You're right - told you I couldn't count. Comes from getting thrown on my head from doing judo for 20 years.

    Must explain why I can never win a debate against an aikidoka, yet strangely their theories don't pan out into practise sometimes?
