Well I'd have switched the 2nd halves of the kung fu/aikido descriptions to

# Aikido: a defensive style with circular movements
# Kung Fu: a fast style with a variety of graceful strikes and lots of grabs and throws

Yup, there is very little striking done in Aikido. I very much enjoyed the couple of years that I took it, never got further than my fifth Kyu tho

Having taken years of Aikido I'd say their description is a fine everyman description of it. Granted, I'd rather have said:

Aikido: a defensive style with lots of getting-out-of-the-way and joint-locks

They messed up the appropriate descs for the martial arts skills in the Matrix MMORPG. Aikido and Kung Fu have each other's correct descriptions. </extreme nitpick>

# Aikido: a defensive style with lots of grabs and throws
# Karate: a powerful style with strong punches and kicks
# Kung Fu: a fast style with a variety of graceful strikes and circular movement
