  1. It is pretty simple to prove yourself wrong, if you don’t believe it works.

    When I first started learning it, I didn’t know, what to expect and had only done Judo before. My sensei told me to hit her. I moved my arm and before realising what was going on I was on the ground. She asked me to do it again, but didn’t threw me down and instead started walking around the dojo with me. I had no choice but to follow her. If you don’t believe it, go to a dojo and try to hit the sensei! ;)

  2. Also the problem with the training methods I’ve seen many times in aikido and hapkido is that even black belts are still training in one step drills and people running at you to train for using people energy against them. If your a black belt you should already know how to use the basic fundementals of the art, not still doing dead drills. That’s for beginners.

  3. aikido is not meant for fighting like most traditional martial arts, it’s meant for spiritual enlightenment. I have nothing against aikido itself, just people that try to sell what they do as self defense. But alot of instructors don’t know any better because they’ve been told by previous instructors, like the blind leading the blind. If you want self defense it doesn’t take 5 years to use it, if that’s your goal. It’s also the WAY you train that makes the difference, it’s like night and day.

  4. I was in a 3rd kyu ranking when i involved in a car accident few years ago.That guy walked out swearing at me & point a finger right up my face.I used only 2 techniques, that was iriminage & tenchinage.Few of the bystanders stop the fight when i was in the middle of doing tenchinage to him.He got bruises & cut on his face(i do not know how & when he got that), it happens so fast but i’m sure he didn’t even touch me! Not proud of the fight but in real fight, Aikido..it really works.

  5. Aikido is a martial art of self defense.What u learn in dojo is a variations of this art.U might not use everthing that u learned on the street.Few of this basic techniques r very useful but to master & understand it u need to learn variations of techniques(with patience) in this art & it takes 4-5 years to really used it on the street when it is needed.Whatever negative comments about it, i’m sure aikidoka will learn these:1)caution 2)distance 3)reflex 4)speed 5) stability & 6)timing.

  6. this looks very planned out. i know aikido is a very interesting style but still this doesnt look impressive

  7. @delvinmacmillen18 Aikido, first of all, Isn’t mainly a style of fighting. While it’s technically a martial art, most people you ask will say it’s a moderately non-violent conflict resolvent. The purpose of Aikido is in a way to escape your opponent while keeping the least people hurt badly, including yourself. It uses lots of wrist and hip throws. The reason why it looks like he’s not exerting much force is because he isn’t. He’s using his opponents force against him.

  8. @goepfert2 If you don’t mine me asking. What the hell is this? Explain to me this style of fighting. Well to me its a whole bunch of brainwashed men jumping around pretending to get beaten up without a touch. I’m pretty sure that will never be done to me or anyone else. I just want to know cause i don’t know what is happening and you seem to know about this than me.

  9. Most of people thinks that when the other man falls, is fake. But the truth is that the rolling part is just a technique to not get injured from another techinque cause if u know how to fall, obviously is better fall and roll than loose a wrist or get your arm broken in a permanent way.

  10. Man there is useless to discuss what style is better. Like the wise chinese people sayd it is the man that makes the way great, not the way that makes the man great.
    And Shioda was certainly a great man one of the best martial artist who ever lived, and to all those UFC fans that doesn’t even believe in this great man why are you watching this then.

  11. @Rookerman32 i wanna see them figthing on ground againt these five men, the UFC its so real, on the street you have a referee an all the time of the world to fight in gruond too. More trining, less videos

  12. @guinnessgalway well in akido, when you advance to higher levels, you get to learn about human pressure points within a body and how to contract a person’s muscle until the nerves get directly attacked. This martial arts is very good against fights, and it’s much better using martial arts in a fight than randomly attacking your opponent till he’s knocked out. So I don’t really what’s the point of mocking such a great fighting style.

  14. Wow, another uneducated UFC fan!
    First, the guy is in his 80’s; not really a good match up. Second, without the rules of the “Sport” UFC many real/true martial artists could take these fighters you listed. They are indeed some of the best fighters alive, but it is sport. Gouge out their eye, bite, strike the throat, break the knee, etc. are all traditional martial arts techniques that could end any of the fighters you listed.
    Educate yourself on Aikido and then rethink your comments.
