I took Aikido for a year...I like it because there are no attack modes just defence modes. I am not an agressive person, so the gentleness of aikido was very appealing. When I moved there where no local Dojo's

The picture of the right is someone in a Kung Fu uniform. Tai Chi is similar to Aikido in it's gentleness, but there's hidden power behind the soft movements. I don't really like Karate, it's all too stiff and robotic to me. It also has not history, it was invented by an army General only 100 years ago. Aikido seems interesting, but my knowledge of it is very small.

Aikido is a more practical martial art then karate. Karate really only truely works in the movies against someone fighting with karate also.

Aikido. It uses a persons momentum against themselves you don't have to be physically stronger than your opponent to restrain them.
