    Why the hostility?

    I think FFF2 would be a great source of clarifying info about Aikido.

    Is it because Adam is a tree huggin hippy fag?

    Adam likes to cuddle, if I remember correctly, not hug.

    Adam, this is a thread to discuss the .org entry on Aikido, not any of your grubby little secrets.
    That may end up on another thread, though.

    Your knee-jerk reaction to an innocuous offer from an established member to help edit the article using their 20 year experience in the art being discussed is a bit out of proportion, though.

    I'm not sure who wants to read about aikido on here, but if there are any i would say FFF2 is a good resource.

    my only comment would be my same old hash... TRUE most schools of aikido are almost completely compliant and nonresistant, but not all... some brands do use PROGRESSIVE resistance, as well as ACTIVE resistance with attempts to escape/counter based upon the experience/level of the participants.

    I' practised aikido about 5 years.

    In my opinion aikido, as a style of martial art, is not as bad as many people think. It is just sad that nowadays those practising aikido are hippies and many of the instructors seem not to know very well what they are doing.

    Beginnerst start to practise from holds, and thats understandable. When practising more the same techniques are done from strikes. The problem is that the attacks done far from a realistic manner and many aikidokas can't even make a decent hit - it is no taught to them.

    As a 13 year practitioner of Aikido, I'd say that this statement is not entirely true. Most students do learn their technique from holds initially and strikes are integrated in as you progress. However, if taught properly, striking is practical and effective, especially as Atemi.
    Another thing that you should note is that Aikido, especially at the early stages, focuses mainly on making sure that you can take a fall without injuring yourself. Teaching proper rolling and proper ukemi are essential from a self-defense standpoint.
    In regard to many teachers not knowing their technique, that seems to be a broad generalization.

    Many teachers don't know the hard grappling or hard contact sparring that Ueshiba built Aikido on.

    Thats the problem.

    As opposed to striking that--um--isn't Atemi?
