Venusian Aikido — from Doctor Who, practiced by the Third Doctor.The Doctor learned Venusian Aikido, a martial art that few two-armed beings have mastered (Inferno, Day of the Daleks, and others; The Seventh Doctor favored a more subtle version of Aikido which involved applying a single finger: Survival), gained a pilot's license for the Mars to Venus rocket run, and visited Alpha Centauri, where he played table tennis with the six-armed natives (Robot)

Venusian AikidoEdit

From Multiversal Omnipedia

Venusian aikido was a complex martial art mastered by the Doctor, but only used often by his third incarnation.It seemed very similar to Earth Martial Arts and never clear when the Third Doctor Jon Pertwee learned this and why the First and Second Doctors never used it. It is allegedly very hard for two-armed beings to learn, since the Venusians had six arms. The Third Doctor was a suave, dapper, and authoritative man of action, who not only practiced Venusian Aikido (or Karate), but enjoyed working on gadgets and riding all manner of vehicles, such as the Whomobile and his pride and joy, the canary-yellow vintage roadster nicknamed "Bessie" which featured such modifications as a remote control, dramatically increased speed capabilities and even inertial dampeners. In general, this incarnation of the Doctor was more physically daring than the previous two, and was the first to attack an enemy physically if cornered (both of his previous incarnations would nearly always attempt to dodge, flee or negotiate rather than directly defend themselves). This often took the form of quick strikes, with the occasional joint lock or throw - usually enough to get himself and anyone accompanying him out of immediate danger - but usually not to the extent of a brawl, in keeping with the Doctor's non-violent nature. He would only use his fighting skills if he had no alternative, and even then generally disarmed his opponents rather than knock them unconscious. Indeed, his martial prowess was such that a single, sudden strike was usually enough to halt whatever threatened him, and at one point he reminded Captain Yates (physically as well as verbally) that Yates would have a difficult time removing him from somewhere when he did not want to be removed (The Mind of Evil).

Sometimes known as Venusian Karate. The (fictional) Martial Art practiced by the third Doctor (portrayed by John Pertwee). The martial art itself involves pure pwnage that can be applied to any situation. It is likely based around real world Aikido along with some Karate bits thrown in for good measure. If you've ever watched the third Doctor unleash his martial arts skills and thought "OMFG! That was AWESOME!", the art is called Venusian Aikido. The third Doctor was a prominent user of Venusian Aikido. Doctor #3
