    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Aikido is for t3h Street... in Russia.

    Love, peace and magic pants...

    It began in 2010, when Sinyukov, then the incumbent president of the Aikido Federation in Kuzbass, established an organized crime group comprised of athletes he trained and trusted. The group operated within the Kuznetsk Basin in southwestern Siberia, Russia, and quickly began to extort victims. Over time, the entity expanded into racketeering, money-laundering, and blackmail, the latter of which allowed the group to gain access to several commercial ventures.
    ...
    Between 2010-2015, it is believed that Sinyukov’s group murdered eight victims at the request of their clients. One of the eight victims was an unnamed mob boss killed in a gangland-style shooting in which the assailants unloaded 30 rounds from a machine gun, killing the criminal in front of his own house in 2013. Another victim – a local resident who illegally traded diesel fuel – was ambushed and assaulted with a metal pipe by the gang.
    ...
    Sinyukov is reportedly a 2nd dan blackbelt in Aikido, a title he received in Tokyo. In Russia, he owned and operated the ‘Sei Shin’ training facility for children interested in learning Aikido. He regularly gave interviews to Kuzbass media, where he discussed the importance of sports as a form of education.

    They teach the metal pipe weapons form and marksmanship in Russian aikido, that's hardcore.

    That sounds a fucking lot more effective than standing wristlocks.

    Well, looks like some aikido people finally came into the mindset of looking for practical application.

    Aikido is all about the mindset. They chose not to fight by gunning him down from a safe distance

    I have to imagine the Aikido school was just a front and nobody there actually trained it.

    It would be really tough trying to run a criminal empire when all your thugs burst into tears at the first sign of danger.

    It is a brilliant deception, really. Being associated with aikido would make it nearly impossible to believe they could be involved in anything dangerous or practical or that worked in any way.
