Jin Kazama and paul Phoenix from tekken 3 also got some aikido moves, if i'm not mistaken nikyo locks and kokyu nage.
Their moves look more like ju-jitsu, though.

The re-animated woman (Nina?) has aikido

listed as one of her arts, and does a more

ikkyo-looking move.

I think I'm going to have to recored a bunch of .mpgs of me attacking 'innocent bystanders' (i.e. dojo mates) with aikido, to hepl dispel all this "only defensive" stuff...

ObRealAikido (remember ObAikido comments?): A nice exercise to get uke to hold well is to give tori a tanto, who does a short-range tsuki to uke's hara. Uke grabs wrist to stop it, and gives a nice opening to tai no henko/ tenkan. When uke realises that as soon as (s)he release the wrist the knife is coming straight back at them, they hold a lot better.


If one makes a distinction between the dojo and the battlefield, or being in your bedroom or in public, then when the time comes there will be no opportunity to make amends. (Hagakure)
