ive not taken aikido yet so i am still doing my homework. I want to know if aikido has restraining techniques like wrist and arm locks. All ive seen in videos is people rolling around on the ground and throws.

Dude, print out this thread and stick it in a drawer. Then train aikido for a month and look at it again. Instant comedy. :)

You haven't seen any videos with pins?

2 minutes on youtube and you are bound to find some vids with some nasty nasty pins.

Peace and love

not sure if you have found what your looking for but if not, add to your homework the search words ikkyo, nikyo,sankyo,yonkyo some of the pins you are looking for.

happy hunting

Yes, do it.
You won't regret it.

There was a fella at our club had a special face for joint locks, a special awful grimace. You just had to grip him and look like locking his wrist and he'd do the grimace ... it was hilarious. Like a pavlov dog.

Hehe, that's like asking if in kendo you get to hit people in the head and scream whilst doing so.

have fun, and the sooner you learn the wrist warmups, the sooner you'll be able to forget your most recent nikyo.

I've not taken Boxing yet so i am still doing my homework. I want to know if Boxing has punches and stuff. All I've seen in videos are people prancing around in mittens doing some kind of interpretive dance.

Yes Aikido has such techniques. I hope the sarcastic responses received from your question don't keep you from learning more about Aikido and perhaps finding a school in which to train. It's a wonderful martial art with many kind and talented practitioners.

Hear, Hear, Paul; Not a bad question, just the sort of one that would elicit the responses made.

What would you expect from someone whose other thread he started is titled: Is aikido for wusses? What would be next?

1) Is aikido for hot rotties?
2) Does aikido has T3H R34L 4RMB4R (TM)?
3) Can my Aikido take on Chuck Liddel and Fedor Emelianko tag team?
4) I have t3H h0Tz for dis gurlz, can Aikido make me SC0R3 with H3R?

Actually, I must say, Boon and Edward, the original poster's writing seems perfectly sincere in his questions.

Now for the annoying it depends statement...

simply put, yes, aikido has multiple joint locks in it's syllabus. however, there are some groups who do joint-locks more than others... there are some people who would argue that techniques are done solely by getting a joint lock, then putting the pain on until the guy jumps. there are some groups who kinda approach the opposite end and say if a lock happens, great, that's one more tool to use but neither depend on them or actively seek them. but those are the two extremes

for a gross overstatement, I'd say the majority of the aikido world does use joint locks as a major portion of their practice.

Aikido has lots of lock and are used for compliance, the other stuff are flying and diving lessons followed by eating the mat.

Yes Aikido does have wrist and arm locks, but the best is when you learn how to hold with ki. :D :D :D
