1. Is it a fair criticism to say that you never see aikido practioners in judo tournaments? 2. Is it good only for unsuspecting drunks? 3. Why do places like the Tokyo Police Academy still incorporate it? 4. If it is a "functional" style, how long does it take to become proficient? 5. Has all the mystical mumbo jumbo ruined it's useful aspects or "harder" versions like Yoshinkan Aikido? 6. What do you say about the judo blackbelts that supposedly switched from judo to aikido? 7. Did Kano really respect aikido or was he just playing politics?

1. Who knows as they would be doing Judo and playing by those rules. 2. Poor unexpecting drunks. But is it a huge aggressive biker type drunk or the librarian who has had it with the dewey decimal system that one day? Being a ninja and having the element of surprise typicaly is favored in any type of subject control. 3. Tradition's a hella of a drug. Ever see what US officers are taught through our academies? Know what it like to try and change that? 4. Functional works from day one on compliant and inebriated passive resistors. Functional beyond that requires resistance along the entire use of force spectrum and the ability to readily increase / escalate or decrease / de-escalate pressure and tactics as necessary. 5. One man's mumbo jumbo is another man's terminology to live by. Look at religion. It can make things easier or harder depending on one's understanding of the real world and how it relates to their philosophy or belief system. 6. Everyone gets old eventually and its cool to stay the course and study the principles of the art that was once your sport. 7. Kano was Judo and used the gentle way in all aspects of his living.

NAPLES BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU L.L.C.
These decisions of what an agency will train in are made by individuals with opinions, experiences and biases, the likes of which we on the UG should be familiar with... Chinese cops learn Kung Fu. Korean Cops and Military learn TKD. Israeli Military learns KM. Russian Military learned Sambo. See a pattern? Also keep in mind that these decisions are frequently made based upon who knows who and what kind of bid they make as a vendor. As Braddock's manager said in Cinderella Man, "we both know what this game is about...and it sure as Hell ain't pugilism."
