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

As far as assumptions go - case in point.

I am sorry but training methods do play a VERY big part.
Sprinters train to sprint on a track, which is identical to the environment in which they will be sprinting for real. Do you train for self defence in everyday clothes on the open street with guys who have real weapons, seriously intent on killing you for your wallet?

Equating success in sport to successful training methods is easy. The training environment and the event environment are pretty much the same, the only difference being maybe screaming crowds and the guy next to you in the case of sprinting.
