Listen, guys, I know it's not what you're looking for --- but that's my Sensei, and he is truly an excellent and dedicated aikidoka and teacher.
Sorry Wendy,

But this site is garbage! Aikido has no kicks, it's not ju jitsu, it's not wrestling, it's not competitive, it's not violent, and most of all, it's a budo! No disrespect to your Sensei, but if this is what he wants to do, it's fine. But he shouldn't do it in the name of Aikido. Many people, such as myself, have studied other arts or tried to tie other things in with aikido for different reasons, such as for self defense on the street. But when representing Aikido, these things should be left out!
