Hi people. This is just a question to satisfy my curiosity, but that in the end can help you be realistic on your skills.

I don't want to enter the discassion of real fight already talked about milions of times, but the question is:

If you had to face a real fight, which one is the technique (if there is one) that you would never use? The reasons might be many, like you don't find it realible, too risky coz if you don't get it right will let your guard way too open to a counter, you think with your actual skill chances to pull out that technique are very low...and so on.

As a beginner I cannot answer to this question, because I still am not confident with none of my techniques hee hee.
I try to avoid using many Aikido techniques in multiple-partner randori. I find that they get in the way and slow me down. The ones that seem most effective for me are (the short) iriminage, kokyunage, kaitenage, and kotegaishi. It is rare that I find time to use ikkyo, unless it is into a throw, in which case it might as well be a kokyunage.

But, if I were to pick the technique that I execute most slowly and ineffectively, it would probably be shihonage.

But who knows about a fight..
