"Real Aikido" is a Serbian martial art founded by Ljubomir Vračarević originating from traditional aikido. I have been training traditional aikido for 4 years and trained aikido with aikidokas who train "Real Aikido" but didn't see a big difference, at least for techniques we were doing. What is the difference between "Real Aikido" and traditional aikido?
answer is - RA is NOT Aikido but initially it was Aikido. Aikido doesnt have homocide techniques, JuJutsu has - RA also has. RA initially didnt have kills, battery and serious injuries. In attempt to create distinct style of Aikido, Vracarevic merely returned principles that Osensei Morihei Ueshiba removed from Jjj. Aikido didnt emerge instantly - by 1942 it was known as Aikibudojutsu, and even today if kicks,punches,etc are involved we use the term "Aikijutsu". If its only tripping, locks,no intensive violence we call it Aikido. RealAikido teaches necklocks, spinalcord dislocations and variety of fist,elbow,knee,foot blows. IMHO - Aikido must never ever teach lethal techniques Jjj,Bjj,Judo,Sambo and CACC allow learning but bann applying such techniques.
