Re: Don't waste your time practicing AIKIDO

It's all relative. The art is as good as the person performing the techniques.

Hi every 1
They almost made me desperate and disappointed of Aikido.
Here are some of their quotations:
“Aikido doesn’t require fitness so most aikido players are old, fat and not strong enough”
“ you can not attack in aikido you just receiving and waiting what the attackers will do”
“ many aikido techniques depend on grabbing which is rarely happen in real fights”
“ aikido focuses on hands to applying its techniques and ignores the rest of the body, no kicks no punches no jumping”
“ aikido is only good for seminars and demonstrations”
“ aikido is too traditional, no body use sword in our world today”
“ aikido is a philosophy more than a combat way”
Aikido is not really useful for self-defence at first. Aikido is: The Way of Aiki. You are supposed to be discovering and developing your aiki. The 'techniques' allow you to do that (if done with that in mind). Then, you will be able to control your opponent, especially if you put your aiki into your Judo or Jujutsu waza. Trouble is - few realize this.

You're wrong. Execution of aikido techniques is not a problem. The problem is to become untouchable. Ueshiba through training became untouchable (duel in the day of enlightenment). Does anybody else tried to do it?

Sorry, the question is: "Does anybody try to do it?"
