Oh BTW explain "lame" share with us your infinate wisdom on the clips you posted.
Do you know the people concerned and want to trash them ? or, are you saying in your considered opinion the techniques/application/principles are flawed.

WHAT THE **** is the first throw in the second clip? The attacker drops to a knee for a double leg, causing his opponent to helplessly fly over his head?!

Oh, and don't listen to sempai. I enjoyed the clips immensely. Welcome to Bullshido.

I thought that second clip was an egregious example of the dangers of too much cooperative practice.
Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

Agreed on both counts... I cannot and will not suggest that was quality aikido because it wasnt. I'd rather a person who wants to troll a system, say why it's LAME rather than just post links.

... a perfect instance of what Aikido shouldn't be.

I can remember doing these types of throws when I was taking aikido. Most of them are variations of kokyuu nage, or "breath throws." Basically, you're supposed to throw your opponent with body movement. They're pretty fun to do, but not really practical as you can see. Concentrating on these throws was one of the reasons I quit aikido.
