    Something I thought I would share with those of you who insist aikido is worthless:

    I was rolling in my jiu jitsu class today with a corrections officer at Albany County Jail. He said at his academy, the vast majority of takedowns they teach are wrist takedowns derived from aikido.

    Anyone wish to claim the Albany Police Department is "full of ****"?
    I've tried using this argument a couple times before on this board. It doesn't work. Some (most people here) people just don't listen to this. I've always said Aikido is probably the best thing people in law-enforcement can learn as a martial art and have heard from many cops saying they've used the techniques in the line of duty. But most people here think that MMA competitions are the only way to justify a technique.

    Please be so kind as to restate your credentials because you have got to be one of the biggest talkers on this board right now.
    I'm one of the biggest talkers on bullshido WTF?!?!!?
    PM you so you can tell someone what a good school is? Where the **** does this knowledge come from? I haven't done it since I came to this board, but you are getting really close to my first STFU.
    I only asked him where he was located because I refuse to believe that is the best school in the area. I never said and didn't plan on telling him where to train. That's his problem.
    Yes. You are correct that K. watered things down and paid more attention to the "spiritual" aspects, but the whole "we don't compete because we're too deadly is wrong. The reasonong, as explained to me, is that it was in an effort to eliminate the breeding of attitudes and the devisiveness that egos can bring into the dojo, i.e. cultivate the harmony crap. No one sat down and said: "We are way too effective now. We had better stay away from people or we might kill them.
    Cultivate the harmony? Was this done in the sixties?

    instead of learning aikido and all the crap that goes with it, they could just practice those wrist locks

    What other crap? Do you mean the philosophy or the techniques that aren't meant to be actual combat techniques but rather about practicing timing and balance? I'll assume you mean both and I'll agree (mostly) with that. Except for the fact it's probably kind of hard to find a place that would teach just the techniques and not the other stuff. And I'd say not all of the philosphical stuff is completely worthless for cops seeing as it might give them some sort of peace of mind and not just end up beating the **** out of someone in the heat of the moment and whatnot. I actually think they should also learn a little Judo or BJJ too but just for a few of the throws and some groundwork so that they can get back on their feet should they be knocked down. It kind of pisses me off sometimes when I see COPS on TV and they're struggling so hard with someone and they're in the perfect position to apply ikkyo, or ude-garami, or just throw out an o-soto gari and end up struggling with the guy forever. Although one of my old roommates did say he saw a cop do sankyo in one of the episodes.

    Since this thread is full of Aikidobunnies and dudes wearing skirts I figured this would be a great place to drop this vid of compliant training .

    How do you guys rate this ?

    Do you see good Aiki here ?

    Link to the real Aikido ?
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.
