Talking Aikido on Discovery Channel

The Discovery Channel recently aired an episode of On The Inside named "Martial Arts: Way of the Warrior". It covered several martial arts of Japanese origin including Aikido and Karate. I was just wondering if anyone else got a chance to see it, and would like to comment on the Aikido portion (or any other part) of the program.

One of the segments was on Juko Kai "Combat Ki". http://www.jukokai.com/ It appeared to be very sensationalized and dangerous, but was backed up by very experienced practicioners such as Sherry McGregor http://www.mcgregorsmartialarts.com/ So, is this stuff for real or what?

I also didn't like the fact that they gave other martial arts more air time than Aikido! Shame on you Discovery Channel!

Thx,

Scott
