    Great techniques! Just fast and simple and effective! I have a question. I've never ever do aikido or any marcial art. Is it possible to do these techniques effectively? Thanks from Argentina 🇦🇷🇦🇷

    It's really funny actually, you tell that Aikido would not work, but what you're proposing as response to different attacks, are the bases of Aikido... You say that Aikido's techniques are really complex, but not all of them ! Maybe we're just going further... And please don't forget the philosophy and everything, i think Aikido teaches to see people and attacks coming, before they come, so you can't react with different way that a fight... And don't forget that aikido teaches you to fall, to stand up quicly, and to respond with stick too ...

    Hey big mouthed dude with bad Aikido. I challenge you to prove that these obnoxious Aikido techniques work in real life. So you can post a real sparring match, or you can come spar me or my brother. We enjoy helping people like you out. Especially your followers. So we can work out the details. If you are in the WA area. We run a dojo in Tacoma WA.

    very good video been following u guy for awhile now......and take note....in the movies its done too perfection too show how the move is done and how it looks......but in a real fight I myself have been into self-defence for 52 years now and as a former bouncer/security for many night clubs in the Hollywood and west Hollywood areas.....im all about putting the person down period with the moves like your showing here when u do this for so long so have a tendacy to shorten everything up and make it to where u can put him down quickly and make him fell some pain....too let then know enough is enough......I do enjoy the videos......

  • George Anastasopoulos
    George Anastasopoulos 10 days ago

    I was trained in Tae Kwon Do. This Aikido is a wee bit complicated, but there must be a purpose for this martial art to be this way! Also, for the most part, I agree with you on the points you made in this TVclip training, advice video, Aikidoflow. Besides, most people who are interested in martial arts cannot actually defend themselves very well, because I am one of them! I only reached the rank of yellow belt. In the real world it is not always the same in theory, and practice; I'd say it is up to 90%, the rest could change, or be different. Aikidoflow, thank you for the advice.

  • mark hazzard
    mark hazzard 13 days ago

    simple answer. run away. martial art techniques are quite good but you have to be VERY fast. Bruce lee was Soooooooo fast he'd hit you in1 second........

    • Luke McInerny
      Luke McInerny 10 days ago

      Sorry but Bruce Lee weighed less than the average women, the average bloke could toss him around like a rag doll, its all about grappling striking is secondary.

  • yeti leo
    yeti leo 14 days ago

    at aikido here they first teach to take eye balls out and knock down the attacker to hit the neck just like you showed at the video. 1:56. if someone comes with a knife, hook, baseball stick the bending, twisting technics are dangerous and takes time to block the attack. everything happens in half second. so aikido won't fail at streets. in fact it is the only martial arts you can survive from a multiple attackers. try to make box, jiu jitsu, karate, wing chun and you can beat one or two but you will miss the third one. that is b/c at aikido training 6 people attacks you at the same time. it is the only martial arts works on streets.

  • canada painter
    canada painter 14 days ago

    it is 100% bullshit.... fighting is a two way street ... each party focus on hooks to come...Aikido works in a controlled environment but not in real fight..Real fight is about OUT FOCUS YOUR OPPONENT , SPEED and POWER.
    If you got those three you will take your opponent down.

    Being a lion in a street fight with a man wins the fight, Aikido in this video is impractical and all choreographed projection and routes of unnatural motion, people in street fights dont hit like pansies...even a woman who is trained will end the man in blue in a few seconds..

  • Pablo Rodrigo Darde
    Pablo Rodrigo Darde 23 days ago +1

    I understand that your techniques can be effective. However, in my humble opinion, this is not Aikido. You are resisting the attack. Aikido is to accept the attack redirecting the force's flow. There shouldn't be resistance.

      That doesn't work very well in real situations though. I don't know why you would limit your aikido to make it less effective in live situations.

    First of All : Aikido is an art of peace and that’s why Ueshiba created it !!! For peace and not for violence... Yes you can use some techniques from it but boxing or MMA are more helpful for a street fight
    And this is why i don’t agree with this video

  • Rapscallion2009
    Rapscallion2009 24 days ago

    I'd say he's got a point. If you're about to get into a fight (and most of the time you know it's at least likely) your body fires some adrenaline at you. That immediately has some interesting effects that give you extra strength and speed, but trade that for your precision, timing and peripheral vision. Add that most bouncers are wearing fairly restrictive clothing (box jackets, coats - because they stand out in the cold!), and your chances of pulling off an intricate technique probably aren't very good.
    A drunken brawl outside the dog-and-duck at 2am in January is very different from practicing with a mate on Thursday evening in the Dojo.

  • Nicholas Borden
    Nicholas Borden 25 days ago

    Couldn’t agree more. When I took Krav Maga (Israeli Krav, not American Krav), it was very much step in, close the gap and basic strikes to the neck, face, and ears to “shock the system” more or less. Keep it simple, but ferocious. Great video, man.

    I suggest that if YOUR Aikido fails in the street, maybe it's because you want to 'keep it simple' and 'just smack the guy with your open hand for real efficacy' instead of faffin about wit 'techniques'? :D
    So this becomes your challenge now: link one(1) of your videos that shows a correctly performed Aikido technique. All else is absolute pure BS. :D

    I have never practised aikido but my father did when he was young in the 70's. His teacher was Toshiro Suga in France (maybe you know him just by the fact he played in Moonraker). The man was a street fighter for real (he taunted bad boys abroad in pubs and alleys when he traveled for his demonstrations and made them bleed...) and he was a hell of a fighter, but he mixed aikido with other martial arts and common sense. He once told my father aikido is the ultimate martial art, but you must be very good to make the most of it, else you won't stand a chance if someone well trained attacks you. Better learn box or something else if you don't practise it at a very high level.
