  1. What I wonder is… in practical usage, are the motions really that fluid? The demonstration is great, but you have to wonder how much choreography comes into play. The “opponent” is not attacking with true intent to harm, and is conscious of the fact that it is a demonstration. Hence, he may be giving in to the motions of the defender, causing him to be felled much easier than if he were truly attacking with intent to injure. Can someone who practices aikido shed some light on this for me?

  2. It is interesting to see how people can say this is new age satanism interesting If it was don’t you think it’d been more spoken of in the media church radio stations or even in church?

  4. @blacksashman hi so you have your opinion but,

    Aikido is translated “the Way of unifying (with) life energy” or as “the Way of harmonious spirit.” that is from wikipedia BTW so it might not be exact. it is ment to not harm ones attacker, i’ve read a story of aikido and in the book it says that they would rather try to resolve there problem by talking then to actualy use there skills. but if any of the Japanese martial arts are Satanic cults then aikido is last on the list by far!

  5. @blacksashman
    if someone wants to do weak budo, let him do weak budo.
    aikido is some kind of cult, like a lot of martial arts are, see kung fu, or all the japanese ones, but why satanic? o.O
    if you say it like that, kendo, karate, jiu jitsu, or judo would be satanic as well^^

    You apply force towards me, I redirect it to knock you onto your ass

  7. @arcanius123 Aikido is performed by blending with the motion of the attacker and redirecting the force of the attack rather than opposing it head-on. This requires very little physical strength, as the aikid?ka (aikido practitioner) “leads” the attacker’s momentum using entering and turning movements. The techniques are completed with various throws or joint locks. so in short, yes.

  9. Do you even have a clue what I am talking about haloheroe? Well, at least you are thinking as you you are expected to, in other words, not at all.

  10. @martelita1234 and the aikideo philosophy is that power comes not from the muscles, but from the relaxation

  11. I was replying to sasat, if you read his post. Why would you ask my opinion on those things? If you wan’t my answer to where I would look for ‘truth’, I will tell you I will follow my deepest sense of truth, not what you, some cult or any other person might tell me, whether that truth is stranger or more unusual than I had expected doesn’t bother me. I didn’t make up this Satanic Cult connection to Aikido , it just happens to be the way it is. Try waking up a bit. Aikido is weak budo.

  12. @blacksashman how do you know whether or not I analyze nothing? Are you in my head? What about UFO or JFK? Tell me something about that.

  13. Sorry, I find find myself hardly in one time zone at any one time so succinctness may not be a strong point at the moment. What I find more sad is people who question and analyse nothing, perfect fodder for cults. Say what you want, the org is irrelevent, it is all the same nonsense. Nothing to do with whether ‘religion’ is in it or not.

  14. @blacksashman and the Archmage comments section is considered a credible source in your opinion? lol Satanic New Age Cult?! lmfao you sir remind me of those conspiracy theorists who live in their own little psychotic, delusional universes where everything comes into question and everyhing requires serious analyzing….lol sad

  15. @markaval absolutely true…but I am simply astounded as to how many people are quick to compare just about anything to MMA…it’s fucking childish…I don’t know maybe it’s just me but…two dumb motherfuckers enter a cage and fight like dogs…basically competing for who gets a fucking concussion first….and everyone is ecstatic about this mundane sport as if it’s the 10th wonder of the world or something…this is nothing new with regards to street fighting….

  16. @blacksashman there are many Aikido styles – Aikikai, Yoshinkan, Yoseikan, Shodokan (Tomiki), Iwama Ryu, Ki Society, etc. Some of them are maybe somehow religious, but some of them are pure martial arts. This video is Yoshinkan, which is pre-WWII Aikido, or I’d rather say Aiki Budo or Aiki Jutsu. There is no religion in Yoshinkan, it is pure combat oriented martial art. My Sensei, Robert Mustard, is always focused on effective techniques, courage, and discipline.

  17. I can’t see a single person who has even tried to make a reasonable defence of Aikido. I am not even close to being a pothead, if anything, it is the vague, fuzzy nonsense masquerading as spirituality within the Satanic New Age that I am speaking against. That added to solid research, which is more than anyone here has. It your friend pinched you when you fell asleep at the wheel on the freeway would cry at the great ‘insult’ of a bruised arm, or thank him/her you are not mincemeat?

  18. if u guys think aikido is a new age cult u guys probably dont even know what a cult is. sure, its spiritual. does that make it a cult? NO
