Im wondering whether or not its possible to teach robots aikido or any other martial art ?

Whats your take on that ?

Best regards
I have seen some forms of aikido make their human participants robotic...

I have no doubt you could develop a human-shaped robot that could be programmed for aikido-style movement... but for what purpose?

For humane defense, maybe just have a heavy-duty plastic trap mechanism that would just hug them very tightly and hold them unharmed?

Any particular reason it should look like human aikido?
