    forgot my book today at work and w/o bullshido was forced to go to www.aikiweb.com and have people say how great aikido is for self defense but that they would never use it....

    it is like buying toilet paper and then using the carpet to clean up....waste of money and it don't make no sense

    Yeah.. its not the best forum for any sort of pragmatic critique. The systema thread is a good example. One person asks "whats systema like?" another replies "its very similar, but not spiritual" before going on to say "yeah.. its descended from the russian spetznatz"
    In short, lots of opinion, very little experience.

    as for your misgivings, I agree that a lot of systema footage on the web looks a bit poo, and a lot of it probably is.
    People who I know are any good in the Uk are RobP and Dave Nicholson, and thats only from personal experience.

    well, for the clips they themselves promote, they claim the knife defenses are unrehearsed, but they are going so slow.

    I am sure VV is tough as nails, but their practitioners seem to need a little help. It is the same in Krav, i usually don't mention the military connection to people when describing it since most military training is not H2H but weapons and other things....

    I didn't like the grappling without striking...or the walking under someone's arm without hitting them or torqueing them. (I tried this in my BJJ class, with horrible effect)

    Like anything the art may be ok, but the presentation leaves alot to be desired.

    I think part of it is based on my bad experience w/ aikido.
