I teach Aikido at a small dojo in Winnipeg, Canada. Been doing so for many years now. This blog is just a collection of ruminations on teaching, descriptions of the events of daily practice, and the occasional funny story.

I've been fiddling with ways to adapt Aikido to more close-quarter fight situations. Its been kind of fun and refreshing to dabble in this area. Here are a few examples of what I've been doing:

The main idea is to shorten things up. I sometimes see "classical' Aikido techniques that reverse direction two, even three times and require sometimes as many as four beats to complete. These techniques are useless martially, I think. They may have value in teaching leading, extension, etc, but it is silly to believe they can be used in actual defense of oneself.
