Someone asked about Aikido:
Are your goals to just have fun? There's no problem with that you are allowed to do anything you want.
But Aikido is widely considered not practical because they don't train through fighting like its contemporary Judo does. In every class I ever took for Judo, after initial warm ups, we did free grappling, 3 minutes per partner for 20 minutes or so, where we try to submit each other (or under Judo rules, pin for 30 seconds). In Aikido, after initial warmup, we practiced some techniques on a partner who would let you practice on him/her. That's the major difference. In Aikido you almost never deal with someone who wants to stop you, in Judo, my opponent is always trying to stop me and in fact is trying to defeat me.
On top of that, in Aikido we never did grappling. Grappling is basically the most effective method for training your physical and mental bodies, to push your limits to new boundaries. It's the thing I miss most about going to class and competing every day. I can work out and stretch every morning and after work, but it's just not the same as fighting an opponent.

So what do you do in an Aikido class, anyway?
What got my attention about Aikido was how it's based on. As I see it, it is about different ways of parrying your opponents attacks. If in Aikido training, your opponent is almost never trying to stop you, what then? What more can you, or others tell me about Aikido? But let's talk about Judo too.

My instructor is Yoshi at UC Santa Cruz, from Japan. So he's pretty old school when it comes to Aikido.
Warmup, stretch, fall practice, pay respect to "O-Sensei" and other standard things occur in a class. But let's discuss practicing a parrying/escape technique
For practicing techniques though, we are instructed to do something, eg grab the instructors/senior student's arm, and they show a technique. Now I would (almost) never grab someone's arm with both hands, and I certainly wouldn't stiffen my body up, but that is what we're supposed to do. Then we all partner up and practice it.
Imagine I am supposed to start pushing my partner, and they have to parry my pushes. Nothing wrong with that, but if someone starts pushing me in real life, I need excellent timing in order to parry that. How would I get that timing if we're working in a sterile environment where my partner and I never really mean to fight each other?
Now in Judo class, fyi my Instructor is from Korea thus the future Hapkido reference, by matter of practice since we're fighting each other, eventually we're gonna try to grab each other's wrists/forearms. There exists a very simply Hapkido technique to break my opponent's attempt to grab it. Seems useful, but really they'll just try again, and again, and again, and unless I stop them, they're going to throw me. The thing is, how do I turn this simple technique for breaking someone's grab attempt at my wrist/forearm into an advantage? How would I ever be able to do this without practicing it on a live opponent who is trying actively to defeat me? That is issue one with Aikido. The other issue I have is without partner grappling/sparring, the workout is somewhere around 1/3 effective physically and I fear much worse mentally. The mere act of grappling an opponent works out muscles one probably never knew existed, it's a whole body workout, and the act of trying to escape an opponent works out your mental strength, are you able to will yourself through that last bit so you can escape and/or take advantage? Only practice will make you so strong.

Judo is hips, momentum, reversals and timing.
I mean bruce lee used judo and jiujitsu in his movies. Hipthrow into armbar lol
Only time you will see aikido in practice is in steven segal movies
Lol seriously about the people saying a good punch or knee can put you out. Sure it can, but how often are you fighting a trained person? The thai plum is awesome as a clinch position. You control the neck and you control the body. But again that is good grappling with good striking.
Lol at the fantasy world where jet li kicks the asses of 20 mma fighters

My dad taught me boxing while I was growing up, but I didn't stay with it (wish I had). Presently I've been doing Krav Maga for a little over a year-- I like it because of the practical real life applications, ie; hitting people in the balls.... a lot.
You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.-Mike_ZIf there's anything we do best, it's breaking games and then making everyone suffer with all the cheapness.-PersiaXO
