    Is that like a Hogu ?

    And when you say 'opponent', do you mean 'pad holder' ?

    An opponent wearing headgear and a bellypad is not a pad holder but elbow and knee strikes are trained against thai pads.

    Unlike Taekwondo and taichi you could actually hurt someone with MT.

    I generally do my knees with a decent amount of force so I don't just fluff the technique during sparring. I haven't been to a place that spars with elbows to the face, but I'm sure they're out there.

    So it's like kickboxing with light-continuous knees and no elbows to the face ?

    It's more like taichi except without the cocksucking.

    Well according to the definition of 'grappling' that was debated here some time ago...

    YES Aikido is a grapling art since we hold and manipulate the joints of the partner...it can't be a striking art since striking is not taught in 99% of the dojos out there.

    granted as it's taught it's more crappling than anything.
    Martial Arts is like sex, if you over complicate it with exotic sounding names, theories and principles, you end up fucking yourself in the ass. -Ronin69
