    "Pure Aikido" does not work in a fight against non-aikidokas. This has been proven time and time again. At least these guys seem to be trying to add something a little more practical to it.

    "Pure Aikido" works in a real fight like "Pure Risk, by Milton Bradley" works in real warfare.

    The first video comes off looking more like Hapkido since they are actually striking each other. However, they share the same problem as a lot of Aikido/HKD people in that they obviously don't train from the clinch.

    You see them trying to go for wrist locks and arm bars straight from the clinch which is hard/stupid/impossible instead of using Judo-type throws or foot sweeps that are made for that situation.
