Book one down, not much but a passing mention or two of Aikido. (LULZ@ "Aikido Trophies".) Into Book 2 and the bullshido is starting to work its way to the top of the sluice pit.

I remember this really bugging me when I read this series.."Boxing is the art of hitting an opponent from the furthest distance away, exposing the least amount of your body while getting into position to punch with maximum leverage and not getting hit."

So, it's scenes like this that make me love the Dresden files:
Harry: "So, there's a new group of vampires in town."
Bob: "I see. And you're waiting for them to make their move, to see what their after?"
Harry: "Hell no. I'm going to break into their house and kill them in their sleep."The fool thinks himself immortal,
If he hold back from battle;
But old age will grant him no truce,
Even if spears spare him.

I once read a fantasy novel where the hero was some kind of BJJ black belt.
There was a great fight scene about a third of the way through, where the hero and his opponent both started on their knees. The hero took a side mount very early, and then there were 15 blank pages where ****-all happened.
Eventually, the bad-guy got gassed, did something silly, and the hero subbed him with an arm-bar. Sadly, it was all tangled in Gi, and the hero's back was in the way of the view, so we (the reader) didn't get to actually visualise it.
I tell you what though... it made for some really engaging and exciting mental imagery.
When life gives you lemons... BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!
"what's the best thing about aikido then?"
"To be defeated by your enemies, to be driven by them from the field of battle, and to hear the lamentations of your women." ermghoti

Seriously, why aren't you nerds reading Jack Reacher?
