Re: Can we see that aikido is all over the place in MMA?
Personally, I can find the lessons best in the judo space than I can find way out there in aikido land. More physical sensation to learn from, I think. Best for this dumb guy.
I do have a question, though ... and not trying to be insulting. What is the benefit of learning how "not to be moved?"
This seems tacky/insulting to say, but "Best way block punch, you no be there." Right? It's always seemed best to me. I know there are certain jutsu branches out there that seem to specialize in "hit me and you can't hurt me" but that smacks of the arms race between armor-piercing vs. armor with armor-piercing always coming out on top.
If they miss, they miss.
OK, back to thread.
