But I don't like people starting aikido thinking that they will learn an art that will train them to rule the UFC or be able to go out and "kick anybody's ass". That is not what we train for. Sometimes I do like to spar and fight, but that's why I also take karate.
What I meant was new people who've never taken aikido (in the general sense, not Mr. Delucia's dojo) might be going down the wrong track to MMA stardom by soley practicing aikido (in the general sense, not Mr. Delucia's dojo). In that perhaps there are other MAs that are better suited for this. Of course I can only speak from my own humble, limited experience.

A real man does not think of victory or defeat. He plunges recklessly towards an irrational death. By doing this, you will awaken from your dreams.
