Re: Poll: Is there such a thing as "bad" aikido to you?

Being honest about what works and what doesn't work in Aikido is crucial to answering this question. Real application needs to be applied, not demonstration, which tell you nothing about effectiveness. Great example found on this link.
Actually that video is a perfect case of one form of bad aikido.

All that video demonstrates is two guys jacking around making the same mistakes over and over and getting further and further from any insights related to aikido.
