Re: techniquies in street fights
hmm...I've never been in a fight . But...if its a street fight, guess you have to be prepared for anything. I do have reservations-I feel that no one will really attack "perfectly" . Like no one will really do a nice shomen uchi or yokomen uchi like they do in the dojo.
I feel that what occurs in the dojo is just practise for the real thing. Its how you use it and go with the situation in the streets-I think jiyu waza was created for this purpose. The sad truth is the more experience with "real situations" you have, the better you get in your MA be it aikido or otherwise. (Unless we're talking oyama karate, muay thai and JKD...hee )
