Re: My Experiences in Cross Training MMA with Aikido

Very good point Mr. Tang.
Aikido comes from an age when swords were the weapons of choice and that is a very good point when comparing Aikido w/ other martial arts. Anyone can take a beating, but Aikido can save a life by not getting cut, or having your head cracked on the pavement by rolling, or sidestepping a thrusting knife and countering, etc..

Self-discipline is the chief element of self-esteem; and self-esteem the chief element of courage. Thucydides
