Re: Presence of Aikido in Krav Maga?

Hi Folks,
There are elements of waza which loosely resemble aikido.These include a few such as Sankajo, Irimi nage , kote gaeshi, Alongside this ar various acrobatic defence work, plus a never ending amount of punching and kicking.The instructor is a fit lad, his partners a bit compliant.At the end of the day you choose this type of stuff or you study the way of aikido.Its personal choice.
Not my cup of tea, the demos were somewhat frantic for my taste.Maybe the Israeli touch plus a exotic name[Krav Maga ] acts as a magnet to/for would be secret agents eg Mossad employment agencies??Jusy my tuppence worth , Cheers, Joe
