Re: Aikido Works

I also remember doing this some in multiple randori in Aikido, instead of retreating as most people tend to do, I would walk forward right in between the attackers and they would sometimes run into eachother or me but would fail their attack. Most of the times they would pause as well, if I was not limited to Aikido techniques during this I could have launched attacks while doing this and really shaken things up. I do miss Aikido randori alot and I wish we did more of it. I learned more about combat frorm the limited Aikido randori I did than from the many many hours practicing Aikido techniques.

This is why I am a constant advocate of randori.

I think the secret is to have no fear and be aggressive, controlled aggressiveness.
