Re: "Is Aikido A Martial Art?" - Roy Dean, Lenny Sly, Vince Salvatore, Corky Quakenbush

"is aikido a martial art" is a fairly ignorant question. Of course it is by definition, history, and intent of the founder.

I really think all of this anti-aikido whampering is being fueled by an incredibly sophisticated MMA hype machine. Just remember, that's entertainment, an entirely different animal than efficacy.
