Hey all,

Just say that you find yourself in a defensive situation and someone is atttempting to use Aikido on you, he already may you off balance a bit, is Aikido, if implemented correctly and quickly enough, defendable against?

Deep thoughts Deep thoughts?
I have been told that all these techniques will work if you do them correctly. However, that is a big IF. Most people are inconsistent in their application of technique.

Even if they have the inital lead, there are many places where they can goof up. Once that happens, you can take over the lead. If they lead correctly throughout, you take ukemi, an option non-practitioners do not have.

It is not practice that makes perfect, it is correct practice that makes perfect.
