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?
Probably not if the attacker is doing the technique correct and fast. If you are bigger and stronger than your opponent you may be able to muscle your way out of his lock or throw. As some people in this forum have mentioned, you can go with the technique and do ukemi. If you can fall out of his technique it will be very hard for your attacker to do kimewaza unless he tries to kick you while your down.

Kaeshi waza is good but really only works when you know what is going to happen.
