Re: Aikido does not work at all in a fight.

Really though, who is a non-aikidoka. I mean i know what it means and all, i'm not ignorant. But some people, non-aikidoka or not have opinions that to them matter and ultimately thats all that matters. Is that they feel it matters to them. But seriously, I think this thread is getting out of hand.
I'm being a bit annoyed by this thread too. I have seen first hand, the practical application of aikido, and that was in a street fight when my cousin was nearly mugged in front of my house. He used a nice shihonage from kata dori on the first guy, and the second guy he dropped with tsuki kotegaishi (i was young, so i have no idea how he set up for it, but now that i do aikido i sort of understand). Needless to say the other two guys were so shocked they ran away.
