  • Credible, eloquent, funny, clear. This coach is one of the best I have ever seen. I am a 50 year old TV Journalist.

  • All sounds good if he stands there and let's you do it, dosent work that way in real life

  • Simple is always best. I'm trained in Aikido and Jujitsu, as well as chunks of others. I have to restrain people at work often and have been attacked many times. I'm 5'6" 180lbs and simple is always best. I cannot strike, but I do execute throws and pins. I always start simple and move to complex as they tire or are disoriented. I believe training should focus on mastery of the simple. Aikido is not like other martial arts. It takes a long time to master the complex. Hell it takes a long time to master the simple. I can teach you to proficiently in jujitsu in a year or so, but in Aikido it's going to be a lot longs.

  • Great video, practical self defence.

  • How about run off 👌🏾 that’s my sort of aikido because I ain’t dumb I’m off skeeez lol 😂

    • May be a viable option.

  • You never expose your open hand and fingers in a fight, high chances in breaking your fingers in each strike, don't teach people that, a trained fighter could grab one of your fingers and have you on your knees or break it.

  • RULE NUMBER ONE, GET YA SELF A GUN. A 9MM AND YA ASS WELL BE FINE.

  • THAT SHIT YOU SEE IN THE MOVIES IS CHOREOGRAPHED FOR FANCY SHOW AND YOU WILL GET FUCKED UP ON THE STREET. SO YOU BETTER PICK YA FUCKING FEET UP AND RUN LIKE YOU STOLE SOMETHING FOR SAFETY. BUT IF YOU HAVE TO FIGHT, YO ASS BETTER KEEP IT SHORT, SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE..

  • The moral of the story, practice sprinting. I like the part of changing the mentality from being a victim of an attack to going on the attack yourself. Maybe easier said than done if the person is a lot bigger or stronger than you though.

  • When you watch things you emulate them. Alot of people watch boxing and MMA, people who do boxing and mma don't punch leaving themselves wide open. You hear it in movies, you hear it in MMA and boxing commentary, never leave yourself open. You don't have to be professionally trained to make sure you don't keep yourself open, you can literally have just heard it enough times. The point being, grabbing someones arm and giving them a "chin shot" doesn't work if they're not leaving themselves open with a haymaker like your demonstrator did.

  • Most Aikido is a Joke. You have Opponets flailing around like fouled soccer players. It is good for what it is....learning some locks and throws. I don't want to tangle up with someone that has a weapon or buddies. I agree take out as fast as possible. Flashy does not work when someone wants to rip your head off. The Bunkai is very seldom even taught in Aikido. I don't need a peaceful Art in the street. I went to an Aikido school where a 90lb Woman was tossing around 200+lb Guys...the Guys woukd just flounder around while she did her techniques. She went to arm bar me / throw me when I grabbed her lapel. She got pissed because she couldn't move me. I didn't let go of her and just smiled as she tried her lame technique. She would get her head ripped off in street.

  • Fast punches better than yu think stronger slower better wrong stronger faster harder better

  • nice one man, great info

  • Seems like basic karate moves without all the fancy nonsense which is promoted by the media. It's what was taught in karate classes 40 years ago before all the movie madness. Karate was never about fancy spinning kicks and how high you can kick or how many boards you can break. It was all about how you can defend yourself in the most efficient simple way. He is correct, a good defense should be reactionary not a sequence of fancy moves.

  • This is good advice if you are committed into a fight. Your sparring partner deserve a beer.

  • Even if I don't know how to fight, or why I've clicked on this video, it is entertaining! Here have an upvote!

  • Nice video! May you tell me wich song did you use as sountrack? I like it very much. Thanks

  • So...essentially what you're saying is, do ju jitsu, not aikido?

  • the turning of the head is very dangerous, you could snap someones spine with the motion of both parties. all the others i agree but please by careful what you show here.

  • your palm strike to the throat could be lethal, it takes very little force to collapse a windpipe. beyond this, you've totally misunderstood the peaceful principles of aikido, it is designed to be non-harmful and defensive, you should read about its origins. your most effective counter to the right hook would likely to not get into a position where the right hook is viable in the first place. if you have to be in a confrontation e.g. you're working as a bouncer, you would be best to learn more practical martial arts like systema or krav maga. good luck and peace.

  • That is called Krav Maga.

  • So why not keep it simple in the gym too ?

  • yes this is called jiu jitsu :)

  • Damn, you are an idiot. I wish all fights could be could be as how you choreographed.

  • simple appeared 63 times :)

  • walk away if there are witnesses because when you hurt those bad guys those idiots are more protected by the law these days and they have lots of idiot supporters from everywhere, we live in a sick society run by psychopaths remember that.

    • TJfishbuk Salliverro so true,first they bully you,behave themselves like mean gangstars with impunity,but when they get beaten go to the authorities and you might get a prison sentence and even pay their medical treatment))) now that's unfair

  • Facts

  • when has this ever worked 😂

    • +Matthew Jackson 5 attackers??.. really...it's quite effective against 1 attacker .. how many times you gonna fight 5 freaking guys ?...

    • Jan..9 , 1996.. ..... worked great that day.... worked real good.

    • Exactly, name a time when the News Headlines read "Man singlehandedly takes down 5 attackers using martial arts techniques". Well?

  • thankyou Sir,from Athens Greece.

  • That was always Bruce Lee's teaching, to always block and strike at the same time all in one fluid motion!

    • Until you fight someone good, then it doesn't work too often. This is the beginner level of boxing and these people think they are experts. Did you know that Bruce Lee never had a legit black belt? He never mastered any martial art, coming from his own teacher. The man was a good at making movies, that's about it.

  • Really nice man

  • I don’t understand, the move done is just one basic start of Aikido technic. What I see is a beginner in Aikido, the moves you showed are very badly executed and exposing yourself. Basic Irimi is just what is showed there. You never offer your back or flank in Aikido like shown here.

  • Very Straight

  • Andre needs a hair cut anyway !! Mess it up man !!😎😎😎😎

  • most martial arts dont simulate real time,, you can practice it but you have to practice in real time and most stuff fails not all but most

  • White man makes unprovoked attack on black man in the street. Yeah, thats a very plausible fictional scenario. The reverse is, of course, unthinkable. Except in real life.

    • Tbh, doesn't really matter that one is black and one is white. Chill bruh.

  • Bro theres nothing simple about how fast your read and recognition is. Your reaction and counter time is sick You were going matrix with the shit. Alot of comments below are talking about different street fights. Im 45 yrs old and ive never been punked by anyone. If somebody really wants that smoke with me they can get it. Maybe ive just been a combination of lucky plus i dont put myself in positions or hang around num nuts who are going to put me in positions were i gotta beat someones ass.

  • Exactly ..don't defend an attack ..attack the attacker.

  • mr. Aikidoflow I reported your video, because it's a call for public violence. it's quite irresponsible of you to motivate the people to have fights on the streets. what if people follow your stupid advice and get badly injured or even worth - get killed. all the people out there, leave the fighting for the police it's their job not yours !!!

  • Do you think a girl can do this? The third is obviously not gonna work if he is taller.

    • +lauradana22 going to practice and sparring 3x a week is harder than fighting, but you'll find that out for yourself. There aren't a lot of females training because it's generally not a good lifestyle for a woman and it's rough compared to what most folks are used to, most quit within a week. Showing up anywhere for 3x a week for 5 years and putting up with being bruised and completely out of breath every time is basically a superpower.

    • +Charles Martel men are everywhere and not all men are evil pricks. I took one bigger than you are down when I was 16, I defended myself without training, but I came very close to dying. My only advantage was that I knew the house, and he didn't. Creative as I am, it will not save me in a different environment. That has never happened again, and will not happen again until it is my time to go. I don't mind being in pain if it has a purpose and ego has another meaning for me.

    • +lauradana22 ok, but training is not right for most girls, you'll be rolling around on the mat on a daily basis with lots of sweaty guys, maybe 1 or 2 girls. When I said it works consistently, the girls who beat me , I am 6,0 200lbs were purple belts who competed a lot. Let's say that's 4-6 years 3x per week, sparring every night. You'll get some injuries as well and it is hard on the ego.

    • +Charles Martel Thank you! I didn't need to fight many times, but I'd like to be prepared when I have to. I wont always be so lucky to think on my feat about what I can use in my surroundings.

    • Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is the only martial art that I've seen legitimately working against untrained men. It's pretty consistent too.

  • Since when a bouncer can break bones or kill someone? A bouncer should immobilise the drunk guy not break his neck with a punch, u probably go to prison if using techniques like that!

  • My only observation is the "head grab". If you were unfortunate enough to snap the guys neck, (yes, it ends the confrontation) but the following litigation may be worse than the butt kicking you might have received. Just a thought....

    • +james cobb, while the possibility would be remote, "if" it happened, is the observation. But worse, is if you just mess up their neck, and leave the disabled in any way. Good luck with that second job, to pay off the litigation and judgment that will follow. It's all about who you can sue, now days. Even if you're in the right.

    • You do realise the amount of power needed to snap the human neck like they do in the movies is beyond most regular people. The most you'd do is tear/sprain the neck muscles.

  • I myself have done NGA for a long time. If you know about aikido you know what that stands for. Two things.... number 1 the idea he shows is the first thing you ever learn. 2 he is sloppy very sloppy even for proving a point. Its obvious this guy doesnt have enough understanding Aikido

  • First, let me say that if you want to do Aikido as an art form and to continue on a tradition, that's awesome. More power to you. That said, I don't personally believe it's an effective fighting form. Bruce Lee said that a person who studies Boxing and Wrestling for a year can beat any person who has studied martial arts for 20 years. As a person who took Taekwondo lessons for a number of years as a teen, I tend to agree with him. I spent countless hours drilling katas that have ZERO application in a real fight. The moves represent moves that you could do in a real fight ... hypothetically ... but in reality there's no way they'd actually work. I spent countless hours standing in rigid stances throwing punches and kicks that, in an actual fight, would NEVER land or do any real damage. Practical application of punching and kicking only accounted for about 5% of class time. In retrospect, I can see that other 95% was a complete waste of time. I stopped attending classes a little more than a year into it because I realized that neither I nor any of the people who joined around the same time I did were really any better at fighting than when we started. We could do a bunch of cool moves and break boards but when it came down to sparing we were all just floundering. As soon as they said "fight!" all technique went right out the window because there's no way to actually hit a person while standing in a horse stance! There's a lot of absolute nonsense wrapped up in most martial arts. Take for example 1:30. The guy throws a punch and the host uses his hand to guide him around and do a bunch of stuff to him. In a real fight, nobody is going to throw a punch and just leave their hand hanging out there for their opponent to grab and do all that stuff with. The only reason the host was able to do any of that stuff is because the guy pretends to throw a punch, then freezes in place so the host can use him as a strawman. There are no strawmen in real combat.

  • nice video, friend. well produced. What kind of camera are you using?

  • lol this is awful :D

  • Dude you kick ass!!!!!!! Best 'straight to the point" tactics, more teachers need to be like you youre awesome man!!

    • +Christopher Reilly you display the definition of ignorance, not me.

    • lol, what an ignorant fanboy.

  • be ashamed of yourself

  • Solution No.1 Rail it back and click the 9...

  • Like, good video. Done. Thank you . Mutual support.

  • He is still doing Aikido, he is just doing the attemi of Aikido, O'Sensei said that attemi is 99% of Aikido. In each Aikido technique there are a minimum of five attemi (strikes) in each technique, there are over 2,000 techniques and unlimited variations to each of those techniques. Aikido is a true Budo (War Art) and if studied diligently is far more advanced than any other martial art sport since in Aikido there are no rules and no competition, any thing goes. Attemi strikes for example strike the temple, throat neck joints attacking the vertebra, strikes to the liver and spleen just to mention a few. Don't bad mouth an art form until you have truly studied it. I don't think this guy would want to meet an Aikido Sensei such as Steven Segal in a dark alley or Sensei Shoji Neisho, master 8th degree who studied under the founder and also holds teaching ranks in Karate, Kendo, Judo and live blade tactics.

  • A gun will always win

  • The enema-nagi sounds like it might hurt a little.

  • Didnt know aikido people fight. I thought they only stopped the fight.

    • +Charles Martel haha

    • They just make excuses why they can't/won't fight. lol

  • 'Why Aikido won't work'; only shows Aikido techniques.

    • From a layman perspective, I found his argument valid: that you shouldn't be flamboyant and keep things simple. The rest was a gimmick to keep the video interesting.

  • why aikido is still good to know. and how it can be used with dumog. and bjj. mixed with wrestling u have a great ground defense. for standing game i would use chinese kenpo. mixed with muay thai. panantukan. krav maga. boxing. with some wing chun. and tiger kung fu.

  • bullshido

  • Run foo is best

  • hmm this first explaination works fine when you're fast enough to set the action in before he hits you. I an old man, i dont have that speed anymore - i gain more time when i follow his swing and use his energy instead of my own -

  • Cool demo..You call these simple but effective moves Aikido..I call them Ju Jitsu...if you want to stand a chance in a street fight you have to keep it simple like you just demonstrated..fancy stuff will get your ass kicked..that why there are no fancy moves in Ju Jitsu..or at least not in any type I have done

  • soundcloud.com/iapetus-music/iapetus-i-gotta-know

  • Aikido will fail cause it sucks ass

  • The techniques you’re teaching here are all basically mcdojo selfdefense karate class, and it wont work against resisting opponents unless your technique and execution is flawless, or you’re in a Jackie Chan movie.

  • This guy makes some great points. Leave the fancy stuff to the action movie heroes and Shaolin monk demonstrations. Keep it simple. The only thing I'd avoid is that last technique, the head-twisting one, for purely liability reasons. Just a little too much force and you could paralyze or kill someone. Unless your life is in danger from multiple foes, I'd leave the head, neck and spine alone. The last thing you want is to end up wasting away in prison because of one drunken douchenozzle.

  • If you break the opponent neck, you're going to jail! So better other techniques maybe!

  • Aikido z dzwigniami jest dobre na pijaczków,żuli lub ludzi już prawidłowo połamanych lub absolutnie wypompowanych fizycznie, którzy stracili wytrzymałość, ale jeżęli ktoś cię atakuje, masz prawo bronić się wszelkimi mozliwościami wraz zabiciem napastnika, skąd możesz wiedzieć z jakim zamiarem oni podchodzą, Jak ten żołnierz GB co stracił głowe przez musliskich pojebów, jak to ocenić? Jeżeli ktoś jest zdeterminowany żeby cię atakować wie po co to robi więc czemu się powstrzymywać przed tym aby tego napastnika nie połamać jak całą resztę która się wtrąci (honorowe walki to solo i sędzia lub człowieczek nadzorujący gdzie jest bariera i ewentualny świadek zajścia, kobiety jak faceci się biją qrwa nie podchodzcie dajcie się im wyładować, a potem wy możecie się wyłądować, a tak głupie pizdy wpadają w samo oko cyklonu jak truskawki do blendera i myśli że wyjdzie z tego bez szwanku, a wyszedł z niej sok i jeszcze więcej problemów różnych płaszczyzn przeważnie psychicznych i fizycznych z rozwalonym ryjem mniej się już podobają facetom.

  • street fight: kill him first, or he will do it. no nice styles or rules. effectiveness. since when did we loose the fairness not to kick someones head lying defenseless on the ground? since when can't we give up an give in?

  • Are a leftist

  • 👍👏🙏

  • So karate over aikido. Simple as that.

  • The truth is simple a street fight is a no hold barred anything goes.

  • Please edit the title to add all the other martial arts also...

  • This is why I stopped visiting London and Great Britan in general, I always felt like I needed Akido. I don't know akido.

    • Where do you live? Canada or France?

  • So instead of using aikido your teaching karate, 🤣🤣🤣

    • Exactly my thoughts watching the video! :-)

  • Never forget to restomp the groin!

  • Pokaži to v kletki. Če ne moreš, je to potem samo sranje.

  • they look taekwondo takedowns to me akido fails cos its not tagb

  • This guy been steeling my moves or what!

  • Love the music too

  • He's like a black, polite, english Master Wong

  • The neck strike can kill. Easily kill. You can shut off their esophagus and trachae permanently, dislocate their vertabrae, break their neck, etc death blows. This guy teaches "Master strokes" or strokes that incapacitate or kill in one move. The easy route isn't always the best route. If people follow this man's teachings in the street, they have a HIGH CHANCE BE CONVICTED presuming police do their jobs. The first blow to connect is all the police care about. That and are there weapons and is there a body dead. If the attacker doesn't land a single blow and is weaponless bar knuckles, but you injure, maime or kill them in one blow with a single neck strike, you are liable for their healthcare and YOU are the aggressor by federal law. If they have a visible weapon being brandished and attacking you, by most means short of killing necessary is allowed by law if you don't pick up a weapon. You could be charged with unintention manslaughter if you kill an attacker with or without witnesses with or without a weapon. And should you kill or maime the attacker, you have to legally report to the police immediately. Doing so ensures they are aware there's a dead body, that it came about by self-defense and THAT gives you the best chance at going away scott free. Especially if there were witnesses who saw the attacker strike first that can coorelate your story. But unless the attacker has a weapon and you don't, such "master strokes" (a strike that can incapacitate or kill in one move) as these are looked down upon by US law and considered "overly aggressive. Generally speaking.

  • Aiki Jujutsu incorporating Atemi Jutsu is pretty much effective on a one-to-one scenario, as its blocking techniques are part of the counter attack. For instance, the second technique you show, you could strike with your left elbow as you block. Don't block and then strike, strike as you block, as you did in the first technique with the palm strike...I'm sure you already know this. I was once a student of Kaze Arashi Ryu, and to be honest, when I first started training I was concerned at just how lethal this art was, but the instructor stated that he wasn't teaching a moral code that should already be innate in you. He stated that what would I rather have happen...be judged by twelve or carried by six? Your primary aim in any angry confrontation is to get away from it without resorting to defending yourself, but if that is not an immediate option, then you have to put your opponent down as quickly as possible and in a way that makes him/her think twice before attacking again. Then again, don't stick around for your opponent to get up. With multiple opponents, you're better off just squatting down and sucking your thumb whilst thinking of a nice place. It's that real! No martial art in the world protects you from multiple sucker punches from the side or from behind, or weapon attacks.

  • I hope 2 years on you stepped it up showing how to defend from the the current trend of people wanting to use knives

  • Sorry, had to stop you at the 0:18. Sophisticated men DO NOT GET INTO “confrontations” but situations.

  • nothing works if u have small hands 😪

  • Aikido is just a joke.

  • I'm looking for Bruce Leroy!!! He thinks he's the Master! If you see him, tell him Sho'nuff is looking for him.

  • agreed ..keeping it simple and real. great advice.

  • This is literally Xing Yi Pi (first element)

  • Fool. You're not blocking sh!t.

  • I see no fails here just a straight forward self defence scenario which when faced with the kind of drunk loudmouths one usually finds at some point in a bar will do the job & for a bouncer this seems the best way to take them out without killing them & going to jail for doing your job. As a guitar player i am in bars for one reason & that's to play with the band but there's always someone as the night goes on that will need this type of taking out & for that we are grateful. Drunks need no help but the excess booze they dump down to get to the point they will need this type of life lesson.

  • Jutsu shadow clones! Just learn that and you won... Can anyone learn me?

  • I did a palm strike all I know Is hard and soft and be first..I did want to punch and do more damage so I did a open hand like a right cross punch...i never seen the guy again....i don't do MA but boxed...

  • MY MAN... WHAT IS THAT SONG AT THAT SONG AT THE BEGINNING?!?! DEM CHORDS ARE JUICE. EEEEEEEEE

  • The whole problem with this is that the guy is leaving his arm streched. In reallity no one do that. That's why your aikido fails. No one will give his arm to play with it. The punch comes in and out at the same speed. Only a moron thinks that one can catch it like in the movies. But if someone thinks that it would be able to dodge go around the guy grab the guy's head and force him to fall... whatever. What a nonsense.

    • You do get it with the drunks who have no training and they do massive backswings which are telegraphed horrifically. But yeah not really a great idea to have to rely on your opponent being clueless. The aikido that I have seen does seem to be a case on each taking the turn being the idiot who madly rushes and overbalances while the other one side steps or uses the momentum against them and each time can't help thinking "Yeah good luck doing that against a good boxer/muay thai etc they will just take you to pieces"

  • thanks

  • i did akido i kicked shit out of everyone when i was 7

  • What you're talking about here seems like a lot of medieval European martial arts philosophies and moves...

  • Love this. 35 years training/teaching and I love the fact that I can still learn from my martial arts brothers. Your art is totally different from mine but at the end of the day a punch is just a punch and a kick is just a kick. I am a better martial artist because of people like you sharing. I would love to cross hands with you some day.

  • Nice video, great explanation. Now I just have to remember those moves.
