    one of the many reasons why I quit aikido

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3viOy-bQSyU

    After seeing something like this, I can understand why a lot of people here bash aikido.

    At 1:45 - 1:47 the attacker does his best impression of a trained circus animal. My dog moves just like that.

    Every year the aikikai does public demos and every video I've seen of those events has this same sensei do the same no-touch demo. sad..

    Damn you! I wanted first!

    EDIT: And seeing things like this shouldn't affect you wanting to train in a particular art. You can always find stupid videos from every art. It shouldn't sway your decision to train in a certain discipline just because there's some people affiliated with it doing stupid things.

    Kudos to the tomiki guys for sparring, but after doing knifework that ISN"T limited toward one specific kind of easily countered stab, It's kind of hard to look back.
