    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Realni Aikido

    Disclaimer: I know everyone is tired of Aikido, but Realni seems to have been absent from the board.

    So this is intersting.

    The two things notable is that it seems like resistance is a moot point when they are performing their techniques, since they look like they would be very hard to resist.
    21 seconds into the film it looks like one practiitioner actually gets kick. Which means they are practicing where the ukes are acctually intending to hit their target.
    They also acctually teach people how to perform proper strikes in their classes.
    Also here at about 54 second it looks like the uke tries to resist, and he just reverses the direction of the maneuver.
    In Serbia where it is from, the other Aikido schools are so offended by it they are trying to legally require them to change their name.

    The worst thing I've seen from it (as compared to other Aikido) is that the randori is still usually done with that strange running karate chop that no one would ever do. It also lacks an video exampled in combat.

    Anyway it seems like the best example of Aikido yet. (Or at least mostly Aikido since it is also brought in serious jiujutsu and judo influences)

    Thoughts? Anyone else know anything about this?

    To be kind, you need to know what you are looking at when observing a MA demo. The guy was not kicked - he had put his hand there as a target for rehearsed atemi. This stuff would only look good to someone who had never actually tried stuff against resistance - it is all pretence, as is most demo stuff. It's not even good Judo, let alone Aikido.


    What are you on about: 'legally require them to change their name'? Unless they are using a registered business name owned by somebody else, the other Aikido clubs are just objecting to it being called Aikido. Just adds to my campaign to get rid of the name 'Aikido' altogether. call this 'Realni' and we know what **** we are buying. Same goes for all the other 'styles' - use those names as the main descriptor and we can all start from a reasonable assumption of what's on offer.
