  1. @jarheadtsm it will you can make fun of him like if he attacks you you can counter it and make him fall to the ground its EPIC 😛

  2. @AurumenK Obviously you haven’t attended any American public school. Avoiding a fight isn’t an option when some punk ass kid is pounding on you for absolutely nothing. The world is not fair, if you haven’t learned that by your tenth year of life then your going to be absolutely scared shittless when reality slaps you in the face.


  4. @jarheadtsm You shouldn’t be fighting in school at all. Avoid the fight and you don’t need the defense.

  5. For some reason, looking at some of these Aikido demos, I can’t help but feel that I’d rather get punched and bruised than get my arm permanently disjointed. At least a bruise will heal.

  6. @jarheadtsm u can hit him if u make him fall to the ground 😀 (although it is against the rules)

  7. @jarheadtsm actually,it’s more on defense so you can’t be offensive with this martial art.Just use it to protect yourself.

  8. Aikido is Ideal for Multipul attackers! Bjj is great if ur one on one. Also other Useless martial arts against multipul attackers are bjj, kempo, boxing, kickboxing, gracie jj, judo.

  9. @ranandom! Also nicely said! I agree with u also! Ive been taken Aikido its the best thing i ever Did! I love it! I would only use it if i really needed too! To protect myself n the people i lpve! A true Aikidoka will neva fight just to fight, What u think we r? The Mma or Ufc!

  10. @Mark. Very well said Mark! Ur absolutly Right!!! One thousand percent! Why does everyone think Aikido cnt be aggresive? It can be as agressive as any other style of martial Art!! Mark u said it Best! 😀

  11. These are beautifly done!
    I’ve never seen a better more concise explination of the technique.

  12. @ranadom – nope definitely not misunderstanding you. All I’m saying is that the point of any martial art is, at the end of the day, what you choose to make it. Aikido definitely tends to best/most effectively applied in a defensive way, and you’ll get no argument from me on that. But that doesn’t stop anyone from taking Aikido and being able to attack with it. I’m not saying that makes it right or wrong – just that the exponent has a choice of how they want to apply what they have learned.

  13. @markaval I think you missunderstand what i am saying. From what little i know of Aikido the point of the fight is not to “win” by dominating your opponents. You dont learn aikido to kick someones butt or to knock someone out in a fight. From what i have seen of it most of the techniques are a defense against an attack. Yes you can do them aggressively, but at its heart its still a defense. I have no issues with Aikido at all, but i do not agree with someone learning it for the wrong purposes.

  14. @ranandom – I know why you are saying this but I don’t agree. Aikido can be used aggressively the same as any other martial art. Whether you CHOOSE to apply it aggressively is another matter. With good use of atemi it is fairly simple to apply aikido techniques aggressively. Whether you are good enough to do so effectively is another matter entirely. Undoubtedly though, Aikido is more effective when the energy of the attacker is used against them.

  15. Actually pins are perfect for this kind of scenario of finishing the fight quick, execute a throw and a proper pin to show the aggressor that if he tries it again he might not escape unscathed that time.

  16. Not at all. Well, i shouldn’t say that. The question is really if you want to “win” (in which case i suggest another martial art such as Hapkido or Tae Kwon Do, or even boxing), or if you dont want anyone to get hurt. Aikido is not an attack style and will do no good for you if you try and use it that way. HOWEVER it is one of the best self defense styles there is. Simply depends on what you want.

  17. Find a place that teachers good old fashioned hard Aikido. Don’t go for the flowery aiki-bunny bullshit.
