Re: Aikido does not work at all in a fight.
There's no way i'm reading the entire thread...lol
So i'll make it brief, even though i'm probably feeding the troll.
I used to practice in "MMA" under the Ajarn Chai, Inosanto, and Suwanda lineage of martial arts. One of the instructors at my school trained in aikido as well as the UFA. He was very, very good at both. His passion was in the arts.
Long story short, i've seen him use his aikido in crazy ways on the ground. Ikkyo, sankyo, etc using silat spins. Just stuff like that.
It's all in how you train. The more you train the more you'll start to realize that.
