    while Aikido has the same idea in all traditions they do vary. Aikikai ryu Aikido for one uses more circular motions, and grace. Yoshinkan are brutal. At least from what i saw of a japanese teacher of that tradition. That’s no ‘easy going’. Uke was pounded into the ground.

    I suppose if you like attacking styles, Wushu, Bujinkan and shotokan are good ones.



    This is the one i had in mind. It takes a little while for it to get more brutal, but it’s there.

    Some good movies that are FUN watching are these:

    Apparently the dojo im going to go to, teaches Aikikai though some teachers
    have studied Iwama ryu aikido under their teachers so it’ll be interesting :)

    45 minute program “Human Weapon” — in this case, what Marine Corps folk have to learn these days.

    Thought it was interesting to see since my daughter is training for the Marines right now.

    Some ‘useful’ basic moves inbetween the demos and history.



    Unfortunately I can not watch the youtube clip. But the “Human Weapon” videos are all quite interesting!
