I'm new here, just thought I'd say hi and see if anyone else around here does Aikido. I've just started and would love and tips or advice.

Cheers Smile

Haha.. yeah that's what he's known for.. guess he was a bit of a poster boy for it? I don't know much about him though, I haven't seen many of his movies.

I've done a lot of other martial arts, starting with jujitsu, though my main styles were taekwondo and hosinsul. I've tried a variety of other styles including karate, kickboxing, judo, ninjitsu, wing chun and hapkido.

Jujitsu was always my favourite - I love grappling! but I couldn't find a school in this area and I've always wanted to try Aikido, so I decided to give it a go and to be honest, I love it because it teaches you to blend with your opponents momentum and use it against them. I also really like philosophy and Aikido is something that I find mentally stimulating with all the new techniques.

And thanks for the welcome Smile

I studied/trained in Aikido for four years (not that long I know) before uni and some injuries got in the way. I really really enjoyed Aikido and in particular the entering/blending aspects which I've found to be quite helpful in the Shooto classes sometimes. Some of the more classical Aikido techniques are quite difficult to apply to the MMA arena but can be useful at times. What I didn't really like about Aikido was its lack of a *true* sparring aspect. Some would say that this is counter to the idea of Aikido but I guess my opinion differs on that point.

Monkeyking - I understand what you mean about the practical application, I've wondered a lot about it myself, but I'm really too new to say. I love some of the principles and think it would be really interesting to see what a modern version of it would be like - you know, if it were developed today against the kinds of attacks that'd happen on our streets rather than on a Japanese battlefield. It'd be interesting to see what works and what doesn't with Aikido in MMA.

have look at the book

aikido and the dynamic sphere
perfect teaching of the concepts of aikido

on o fthe guys at academy does aikido
that means he does soem different things that he applys to bjj
9oh he got himself a silver medal at pan pacs)

maybe there is something to this aikido stuff

steven seagals style (although started with aikido) is a litlle more aikijitsu style
which is a little more street ready and agressive

yes but no

yes it does match with locking techniques and throws and such

no it does match in some ways (although they can be modified) that many of the techniques are design off strikes and kicks

not sure if its ready for the street

but remember you must start some where, not to many arts just start ok the guys going to deliver a 20 punch kick combo to a take down to top control drill to g n p to mount arm bar

great now defend this

we all learn step by step
basic parry jabs drill
cover hooks
shell against cross
sprawl against double leg
we learn them as single steps and intregate them in to seemless flowing sparring

BJJ sounds fascinating, I wish there was a school near me, I'd love to check it out. I went and watched a class once - part of the Gracie school? It was down in Melbourne though (I'm in Brissie) and it looked fantastic.
