    CMA got me right into Aikido. For me it meant a great progress, from dancing alone to dancing with a partner. :icon_razz

    It depends on the style and what you use it for. Ueshiba's latest style aikikai is the weakest. Some of his earlier students were not happy with his peace and love quasy religious attitude after WW2 and went separate ways .The most notorious are Yoshinkai/yoshinkan founded by Gozo Shioda and it's the style practiced by the Tokyo police department and Minoru Mochizuki's Yoseikan which is well known in Canada and Europe. And of course you also have Aikibudo/ Aikijujitsu. Aiki techniques can be useful for police officers and security guard as well for the military and they are usually referred as non lethal techniques, when the main objective is to restrain a suspect or detainee.

    :rolleyes:

    Another ill informed opinion.

    Aikikai is not a style of aikido but an organisation under which, aikido organisations may apply for affiliate membership. It just happens to be lead by the Ueshiba family

    Ueshiba's 1st generation students didn't set up their own methods purely because of what you suggest, which is simplistic at best and misleading.

    There's no credible art known as Aikibudo, that phrase was coined by Ueshiba to describe what he was doing at that time, Aikijujutsu is merely a generic phrase it is not an accurate form/style name unlike say Dai-to Ryu or Kaze Arashi aikijujutsu

    And out of Yoshinkan their is Sakurai Fumio who consulted the founder of Daido Juku and developed his new style called Shoot Aikido. A style with competitions, which claims it made Aikido work.

    There are many ambitions to make Aikido an effective art, but nowadays in the majority of Aikidojos they unfortunately still teach crap. So would you suggest someone to learn Aikido without warning him about its limitations?

    Yahoo! Answers is perhaps the most stupid addition they've ever made. It's pointless. Much like Myspace.

    People ask obviously easily answerable questions, they get the same answer over and over. Ever one has their cute hip little avatar of some fashionable anime ****.

    Yahoo! Answer drops the value of yahoo as a total. They couldn't cut it as a search engine. They offer **** loads of features, yet get owned by google like it was nothing. Check their respective stock prices.

    Godamn you Yahoo. You are losing.

    In closing...99/100 yahoo questions are dumb as ****.
