To answer your question,
Aikido, 99.9% of life I'm going to say 99.9% not effective. Do Jujitsu or Judo.

Do Judo, if you want excellent grappling that still has some Japanese/martial artsy traditions. Aikido is not very effective. It is most effective as an add-on to a good foundation in basic grappling. It also has to be trained correctly, which most aikido clubs don't do. And even then it's application is limited to controlling an opponent who is not actively trying to kick your ass (i.e. they are only half heartedly resisting/attacking).

Go to style vs style in the video section, and look up Daitoryu Akido master vs. team Barbosa Japan watch video and form your own opinion. Then report back to us ASAP! Oh yeah! welcome to bullshido.

O for the love of God. If he exsist. That is not Daitoryu or aikido. That guy said he was a ki master and he is full of ****. I have never ever seen aikido or aikijujutsu do anything like that horse ****. For one he is swatting at bugs when he attacks and two if he is aikido or aikijutsu then how did anyone train him like that. No No NO NO. If that was real daitoryu then i will kill myself with a cooking spoon. Aikijujutsu is the art were jujutsu and then judo came from please do not believe that was aiki in anyway, shape or form.

And from what I can see here is that most/some of the people that want to bash on aikido have never even been to a class or very few and have no true grounds as to which to base their judgement on. So if you haven't tried it please shut up.

I trained Aikido for 6 years, is that enough? My instructor trained it for more than 20 years (and he was no hippie by any definition) and he said: "if i had to fight i'd never use aikido".

So if you haven't tried it please shut up.
Mods: Please to note, I was not addressing the noob/op here in newbietown.
