    'Aikido vs taekwondo' IN ACTUAL VIDEO FORM?

    Woah, stumbled upon this on youtube and haven't seen it posted around here, it looks like actual medium-hard contact sparring between aikido and tkd. And bullshido never has enough 'style vs stylin on you' videos to go around.



    Maybe it should just be called tkd vs crappling? Cool to see the aikido stuff applied so effectively, even if it is against someone with absolutely no ground defense. Check out that silly putty guard pass at the end!

    The aikidoka is a badass for doing that. I'm very impressed.

      I learned the hard way that blocking kicks with your hands like that is a good way to break, sprain or dislocate fingers.

      But good for them

        Right there with you, my fingers never forgave me 100% either.

            Also against someone that sucks at taekwondo too and hits and kicks like a girl, however the important issue most ignore is that most arts are not very effective for offense. All of it is really terrible.

              I still stick my hands in to block kicks like that now that I'm cross training Muay Thai.

              Goju-Joe is absolutely right. I just don't seem to be able to stop myself.

              In the style of 'Clockwork Orange', I keep watching that 5 second arm break video someone (whiteshark?) posted recently, but it doesn't seem to be working.

              Here's a tip for you all. If you ever want to punch me in the face, just feint with a leg first. I'll open the door right up for you.

                Anyone remember that video where an old kung fu guy is fighting an MTer and he's (the kung fu guy is) blocking kicks with his hands, or just standing there and taking them on his legs - all the time being like "Is that all you got? Come at me properly, bro - you candy-ass martial sportist, you!" (well, that's what it seemed like), yet is clearly in a world of hurt from it?

                  I did a bit of sparring on saturday, and concentrated so hard on not dropping my hands that I essentially had to paralyse myself.

                  I did the whole "look casual" routine, but my left thigh looks like someone took a hammer to it.

                      I got to give the Aikido guy props for pressure testing his stuff. Sure it didn't work as well as when they do compliant training, but isn't that one of the points of cross training?

                      Plus he was able to get some takedowns and submissions.

                          Does anyone have a link to this video?

                            I think this was it (seems it was MMA, rather than straight MT)...

                              I know that Aikijutsu does (or at least mine) so it wouldn't surprise me.

                              Video isn't bad as Aiki is actually okay for handling head level kicks, which is mostly what this guy is throwing. I'm pretty sure that a well rounded striker would chop this Aikidoka down without too much difficulty, and that anyone with a decent ground game could escape those pins.
