Re: Can we see that aikido is all over the place in MMA?

Aiki, yes. Aikido, no. Chris' definition would have us giving the name aikido to that karateka's karate, that judoka's judo, that wrestler's sumo, and that dancer's dance.
that would suggest that ai-ki-do is more the doing of the techniques and the performing of the various things we associate with the art than it is the strength of the principles behind them. Or is it not? It is the other way around or somewhere in between?
