    Full Contact Aikido?

    Stumbled across this. A Japanese Aikido class with some degree of sparring. Don't see a lot of blatantly aikido techniques although 0:33 looked very aikido. Enough talk. Here it is: YouTube - 合気道組手(フルコンタクト合気道 覇天会)Aikido  Sparring 1

    Too bad it doesn't look like it does during drills.

    God bless 'em, they're trying. Which is more than can be said of the vast majority of Aikido schools.

    That's the only positive here. At least they are going for development.

    The first video looks like Kyokushin Karate and the second just looks like bad wrestling

    Aikido is a noble peaceful art and can be very powerful because it is so efficient. In Aikido the philosophy is not to resist and this makes sense for what they do. This sparring is not pure Aikido it is a bastardized mess.
