    Aikido help

    I'm new to martial arts. I'm looking for a style to train in. I'm old, so it can't be too tough. I've been considering Aikido. What do you guys think?

    I want to answer you before you get flamed

    Please do a search function. There are a lot of strong opinions of Aikido on this forum.

    "Steven Segal is a striking and somewhat boyishly handsome looking (often with ponytail) and usually impeccably dressed action star who burst onto the martial arts film scene in 1988 in the fast-paced Warner Bros. production Above the Law (1988). The enigmatic Seagal commenced his martial arts training at the age of seven under the tutelage of well known karate instructor and author Fumio Demura, and in the 1960s commenced his aikido training in Orange County, California, under the instruction of Harry Ishisaka. Seagal received his first dan accreditation in 1974, after he had moved to Japan to further his martial arts training. After spending many years there honing his skills, he achieved the ranking of a 7th dan in the Japanese martial art "aikido" and was instructing wealthy clients in Los Angeles when he came to the attention of Hollywood power broker Michael Ovitz."

    That is all,

    Well, I lost a bunch of weight (180 lbs.), and I want to keep it off, so I'm looking for an interesting workout. Martial arts fits the bill, but I don't want to do solo forms, I prefer grappling, or at least working out with a partner.

    I recommend Judo. Once you learn to breakfall it's really not very hard on your body.

    We have 50 year old plus guys who train submission grappling with us.

    If you're in NYC consider checking out the Boxing Trainers at Fighthouse on 26th Street. They do some really solid conditioning and basics drills and it will give you a chance to see a lot of the area's different schools and styles in action as a ton of different groups train in the same location.

    What age are you that you're considering yourself "old" anyway?

    Don't do akido.
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    Most schools of Aikido are pretty soft, and won't constitute any kind of effective workout. May I suggest you try Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, we do fewer big slamming bone breaking throws than Judo, which makes it less crippling for the slightly older among us, but you still get to choke people out.
