Re: Aikido in 70 Words or Less

Aikido; a modern Japanese martial art derived from traditional Jujitsu, utilizes blending with an opponents energy and redirecting it to end conflict as easily and safely as possible. Throws, Strikes, Pins and Joint Locks make up the empty hand curricculum alongside Sword, Knife and Staff training, as well as multiple attacker drills. Aikido is not dependant on size or strength and as such is suitable for everyone!

They're all screaming about the rock n roll, but I would say that it's getting old. - REFUSED.
