Re: Youtube: Aikido V MMA in the ring

a couple of comments then i will get on my iron horse and go for a plunder and pillage trip to the local donuts shop.

before folks start posting video about aikido and mma and such, please consider this,

1. aikido is 100% atemi. you hit first. you hit second. you hit now. you hit later. and when all said and done, you hit some more. and you continue to hit and not bother taking name. if you are not hitting uke with your body, then you use uke's body to hit the earth, tree, wall, table, car, bus, tank and other inanimate objects, preferably with some great amount of mass.

2. if uke doesn't respect your atemi, then you need to work on your atemi until they do, and proceed with #1 above

3. let uke knows that if he/she/it is in range to hit you, then he/she/it is also in range to be hit by you and proceed with #1 above.

4. if uke still doesn't respect your atemi, then proceed to run he/she/it over with your tank (always have a tank in handy, you never know when you would need it to fight through the buffet line) and don't forget to look both way before you run uke over, just in case you get run over by some old aikido dude in wheelchair. those buggers are vicious and dangerous as hell.

Re: Youtube: Aikido V MMA in the ring

I completely agree with this, but the problem is how many aikidoka know how to REALLY hit? The vast majority of aikidoka I have trained with on the mat couldn't punch or kick their way out of a paper bag. I would gladly each one of their shots to close range, slam them on the ground and choke them out.
