Re: Aikido. The Martial Art.

People get thrown REALLY hard in Judo all the time. Some bjj guys have a few pretty slick standing submissions.

Later in Ueshibas life, he focused on Aikido as a safe way to restrain someone, and many of the hippies that came after worked on this idea as well.

I don't think unarmed Aikido is particularly "deadly".
