Careful Te - he's a [shudder] yellow belt in TKD. Roughly translated he only thinks he can kick your ass.
Was it just me but we had once sentence, six lines, about as many ideas, and not one made sense. My head hurts - I have just been defeated by a No touch throw.

not saying anything negative about capoeira, not saying that people practicing capoeira can't fight, not saying that people practicing capoeira can't compete in MMA. Capoeira by itself though is not a MMA and neither is aikido. Aikido will probably never work in the ring with professional fights, it's simply not that kind of martial art. But to say that someone who takes capoiera is going to kick someone's ass that takes aikido is simply a retarded, uneducated argument. A lot of aikidoka if not most have and do train in other martial arts which is to say that I will use whatever works. Because I practice aikido does that mean that I forgot how to punch or kick? Because I win a fight by kicking somebody in the balls, does that make me no longer an aikidoka? If Randy Couture tomorrow trains for six months in aikido to cross train and wins his next match, does that mean that aikido dominates MMA? No, No and No

My main points of contention in the earlier post were that A)"Aikido is all about trying to grab your opponent and throw them to the ground and useless stuff like that" --couldn't be more wrong, and B)"Aikido doesn't have no striking background in that art which makes Aikido useless on the street" --wrong again.

*Unfolds prepared statement*
Ladies and gentlemen.
It is my opinion that aikido is not effective against strikes, grappling, multiple opponents, drunks swinging beer bottles, homeless people asking for change, romos, nutriders, senior citizens or children. As a result it should not be studied by anyone for any reason regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual identity, religious beliefs or beer preference.
That is all.
