« Memorial Day Gashuku: day 1 | Main | A tour of the 31 kumi jo »



I can't disagree that Segals peaonsrl life has become a joke but if you watched that entire video and just watched for negative things to post about then I feel bad for you. In that small clip if you couldn't see there were things Anderson could pick up then you really know nothing about martial arts or MMA in general. Every martial art has something to offer, even a passive style like Aikido. I train Jui-Jitsu and kick boxing myself but Ill say this, Id take an Aikido guy against say a knife wielding mugger over any mma trained fighter. Just because a martial art does not translate as well in to MMA does not make it any less effective. Lets not forget MMA is pretty far from a real fight.

Aikido Quotes

  • O-Sensei: My students think I don't lose my center. That is not so; I simply recognize it sooner and get back faster.

  • Morihiro Saito Sensei: Aikido is generally believed to represent circular movements. Contrary to such belief, however, Aikido, in its true KI form, is a fierce art piercing straight through the center of opposition.

  • Furuya Sensei on Swordsmanship: Letting go of the idea of “sword” and the idea of “action” is the meaning behind “willow in the gentle breeze.” When the slight summer breeze blows, does the willow follow the “nature of the willow,” or does it follow the “nature of the breeze?” Please think about this - in this lies the essence of sword technique.
