    Difficult to go from a hard art to a soft art...hardest thing was to relax and try NOT to use force...and then the technique would work best when relaxed.

    Anyway, I think that we are now chatting in the thread....so I will stop it, not sure if ethical.

    Gotcha.

    You should read up on the Tokyo Police Tournament of 1886.

    Well, darn it Enkidu has covered this stuff pretty well! On topic with this, Ueshiba was critiqued by his peers and contemporaries (yes, while he was still alive) for Aikido becoming a watered-down less-than-combat-worthy system. Whereas Judo eclipsed JuJutsu by focusing on techniques that could be drilled and utilized in sparring at full combat speed relatively safely, which resulted in practitioners who could apply their techniques more effectively against resisting opponents.

    I've covered Aikido in previous posts, mainly addressing the negative effect (for combat) that Morehei's religious advisor and philosophy had on his art. And I also stated that I would rather hear from Ueshiba's teacher who lived a warrior's life and didn't grow up as a rich privileged child with a silver spoon in his mouth and dealt with no real adversity.
    Also, my experience with Aikido is that more time is wasted "honoring" your instructors than is spent actually training (which may be in part due to a lack of combat depth so I guess they have to fill the time somehow:hilarious:) A similar system is Small Circle JuJitsu, which makes no pretense of only using the standing grappling and pain compliance unto itself as they incorporate striking in combination with their grappling techniques which makes it very viable, IME with that art.

    There we go, some merciless strikes at Aikido! No more Mr Nice Guy for you Locutus!;)

    You can do just about anything you want to a total grappling goofball, so I guess they can apply Aikido from the guard then:whistle:
