    You Think Aikido Dance is bad...

    Judo is officially ruined, useless, void of any martial value.

    This may be the greatest thing I've ever watched.

    If the dancing class I took had looked like that I definitely would have stayed longer.

    This, however, does:

    You know your chi is strong when your opponents start falling over from 15 feet away.

    I suspect that the secret to high level aikido is oiling the floor and getting your opponent to run at you.

    Maybe we've got it all wrong and it's actually an exercise in falling? I know if I tried to execute some of those flying leaps without practising I'd really hurt myself.

    Good ukemi waza does take a lot of practice and skill, and is useful to protect yourself when falling, voluntarily or otherwise.

    Just for the record, I don't think Aikido sucks. I think that for what it was designed by whom and when and from what, it is quite useful.

    However, a lot of people who suck do Aikido, or do Aikido very poorly, and are deluded, voluntarily or otherwise.
