Lowkido
Get low! Hit the flo'! Not too low, though; there's a DQ timer on this thing.

Introducing: lowkido!

A battle of low stances in a simple aikido dojo

Inspired by multiple official mods, lowkido is a fine blend of standard aikido, erthtk, lenshu, and more!

What's so special about it, though?

GAMERULES



What makes this any different from other mods?
lowkido aims to provide a new level of strategy into combat by allowing players to show off their moves in new ways! The floor is a friend in this mod (to a limit), so make good use of it! Many players will likely prefer the other staple mods like ABD and erthtk, but you can always give it a shot and see what you think! Adapt to simple lifting openers, improvise your own combat strategy, and overcome your opponents to make them taste the ground!

SCREENSHOTS



Sound any fun? Try it out with the download below! Along with it are some replays demonstrating the lowkido experience.

Lowkido means getting low, and that's fun. Would definitely recommend trying out this mod.

Here's a replay of me getting low with avenue (something awesome idk).

By popular request, a new graphic form of lowkido is now available!

That's right, it's lowkido_brutal!

Well that can't be good

The gamerules remain identical to regular lowkido: 275 frames in 11 turns, 50-frame dq timer, further engage distance... except for one thing.
DMs are now enabled!

Try out the next edition of lowkido below! If you prefer the old version more, you can use the original post in this thread! The mod has undergone quite a few changes lately, but should now be settled on the currently written gamerules. Thanks to all who have attended the playtests and gave their feedback; it wouldn't be lowkido without you!

Which one is official?
Hey there! Is Lowkido Brutal the official release? Or is the latest version without DMs the official release? Just want to know for when I’m hosting rooms. Thanks!

lowkido_v4 and lowkido_brutal are both the finalized, "official" releases. it's just a difference of if you want DMs on or not!
