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

I'll give this one more shot.

"In reality, Aikido has no forms, no set patterns. It is like an invisible wave of energy." - M.Ueshiba

That's pure Aikido. If that answer doesn't satisfy you then call it whatever you like Matt.

Okay, so pure aikido has no forms or set patterns. The martial art we practice in the dojo does have forms and set patterns, therefore it is not pure aikido. Fair?
