    well when you look at aikido through aiki-goggles, you see awesome.

    sort of like beer goggles, except aiki-goggles don't get you slapped by women... oh wait...

      I just saw a bunch of clumsy people falling down in that video. From this I draw the conclusion that Judo destroys your ability to stand upright under any circumstances.

          And BJJ destroys your ability to do anything other than flop onto your butt and then rub it up and down on a mat, like a dog with an itchy arse.

            I've only been properly slapped once, when I was two timing on this girl and my friends thought it would be funny to text this fact to the uni dj and my text was shown on the big screen so that the whole student's union could see it. She was not too impressed.

                So Just to re cap.
                Everybody should learn how to fall properly because everybody wiill fall down at some point.

                And

                Um. Akido

                Is that about right?

                        ...they can't physically, emotionally and mentally cope with the training methodology that would be required for it to approach effectivness, ie: sparring. The same problem stops them cross training in arts that could provide a delivery system combined with their deep desire to overcome their vast inadequacies without any actual effort means they buy into the whole bs about being too deadly etc...

                        Aikido was filled entirely with scrawny pansies, asian girls and a few tubby white chicks. The Jujitsu clubs were filled with the British equivalent of band and AV club members. The membership is a good 80% of the reason those martial arts as represented on campus, stink.

                        Fix the membership and the training methodology and delivery system issues will resolve themselves.
                        This!

                        It seems that the problem lies not with the ARt of Aikido, but with it's recruitment. I'd like to help save Aikido, and I think we can start the ball rolling simply by changing the advertising leaftets

                                Wouldn't most of Ueshiba's attacks have originally been mostly carried out with a sword, and/or defending himself against an opponent possessing one?
