    No, you're thinking of the Combat Ving Aikinintaijubojutsu-kai people, led by Grandmaster Hanshi Kyoshi Shihan, Ph.D, 18th dan MMA.

    I think that's been tried before.

    I know someone who awarded themselves dan grades in "Budo" and when challenged about it they said when you have a dan grade in three separate arts, you can claim a dan grade in Budo.

    This came from a guy who amongst other things tried to claim that he was a student of Kendo, again when challenged, he gave the name of his teacher and the year he started however, it was quickly established that the supposed teacher at that time hadn't even left full time education and didn't even start his own training in Kendo until the following year.

    Nice read, Simio.

    One of my teachers once said, to somebody else, something along the lines of, "The more aiki something is, the more bullshit it is. That doesn't mean it doesn't work. It just means it needs more set up." That falls in line well with what the quoted post is saying about viewing aikijutsu-based techniques as a study of dynamics.

    Yes, after i posted and thought about it, but playing random asian martial arts bingo to create a bullshit style isn't new at all. Maybe we should have bullshido bingo cards made for this (mark a square if he uses the soke title). Also, not helping matters, being a grad student and dealing with undergrads on a daily basis does not help my faith in humanity.

    Bumped to ask if this could be stickied because this particular topic will always rear its head.

    I think Aikido by it self is a very difficult martial art to find a legitimate Dojo much less any offshoot.

    I believe in NY , maybe somebody can correct me the NY Akikai is the best known Aikido Dojo.

    Ouch man.

    Sadly, I agree with you though. We learned some of the traditional diato ryu stuff, which was pretty cool at the class where I took it. But I guess you could only loosley define it as aikijujitsu in the technical sense because we did a lot of FMA drills, and other stuff as well. I will say this though. I have tried to use some of the joint locks while rolling in my BJJ class, but most seem to be relatively low percentage locks (on grapplers at least), but I will occasionally pull one off. If you are asking me to prove provenance of lineage on the aikijujitsu we dabbled in, you'll have to give some time.
