anyone heard of a MA called "aiki"?
I was reading a local newspaper some time ago and in one of the neighbouring towns here there was a sports day also featuring MA's.
The article mostly talked about a new MA called "Aiki" which was acknowledged by the international federation of MA's.
I didn't see what they do as techniques but the idea is teaching respect, calmness etc. very much like aikido. On the other hand it said that they also teach attacks (very much not like aikido) and different weapons, including some that one doesn't often find in aikido.
Did anyone hear of this MA? Does anyone know if they're really acknowledged and accepted?
