Re: Can we see that aikido is all over the place in MMA?

That doesn't answer my question. You have stated that "true aikido has no form". But the martial art we train in the dojo clearly has form: it has techniques, it has stances, it has traditions, etc. Therefore, according to your words, the martial art we train in the dojo is not true aikido. So what shall we call it?
Quote me correctly, I stated "pure Aikido has no form.", not true Aikido.

I'll give this one more shot.

"In reality, Aikido has no forms, no set patterns. It is like an invisible wave of energy." - M.Ueshiba

That's pure Aikido. If that answer doesn't satisfy you then call it whatever you like Matt.
