    The martial art of falling down?

    Hrm... Six Years' Aikido training, vs. One Summer, Circus Arts Pratfall course. Barnum & Bailey for the win.

If you look at aikido as the art of falling down, it surely exceeds all others.
    Exceeds all other arts of falling down? I don't think the competition is very stiff. I am beginning to look at aikido as the art of being a crappy gymnast who watches too many kung foo movies and thinks he's a badass and secretly hopes he never gets into a real fight.:bs:

    Wow...that second video is amazing. Next time I am wandering around barefoot, and I am attacked by a barefoot assailant I am so going to use that first technique.

    I won't say you're wrong. But the one thing I got from Aikido was great uekemi and have benn able to step into CSW, BJJ, Judo, wrestliong and train the takedowns and throws at full speed with out getting hurt.

    So Aikido does a very good job with that.

    I too credit aikido for not ever sustaining any types of injuries while training takedowns.

    What's uekemi? Is that breakfalls? If so I know what you mean. I started with a BS martial art that used throwing techniques. Just about the only useful thing I learned was how to be thrown and not break my arm/head landing. Definitely useful.
