How realistic a goal do you feel is the "aikido" notion of defending yourself while minimizing or negating damage done to your attacker?
Voted somewhat realistic.
It all depends on the attacker's desire for harmony, i.e. harmony with the asphalt, harmony with the concrete wall, harmony with the lamp post or the harmony of escaping unhurt when he realises he messed with the wrong mofo this time.
It's all about what the attacker needs to find harmony imho.
