Well, bots are generally intended to increase efficiency. In apprehending those who need it....what's most efficient while remaining safe and humane? If the purpose of aikido is to reconcile the world, would we create robots that talk people down from bad states of mind, or lure them into containment devices and show them movies until letting them into a holding cell? Generally, a robot wouldn't have to "fight." If it were a matter of "duking it out," the robot could just have any number of devices that could knock you out before you could see them coming. But...who would duke it out with a robot?

Maybe seeing two asimos doing aikido would be interesting.

I noticed from the clip that the robots already sing better than I, so ...
Yes, seeing two asimos doing aikido would be interesting.
