I for one would enjoy seeing good-looking mostly nude young people doing acrobatics over bulls' horns. Oh, wait, that was Crete. Never mind.
Jumping is for weaklings, the greeks had Pankration where they would beat the living snot out of each other.

In the nude.

OK I'll bite.

Aikido evolved from an unbroken tradition whereas with the Olympics there was a 1600 year break between the last ancient and first modern.

So, combined with OP's use of "anachronism" it is true that Olympics are more "anachronistic" that Aikido?
