Re: techniquies in street fights

agree Larry. However, the main focus of the DO arts is not "realistic training" or "training for street fighting". That is why we don't typically practice fast "boxing" skills, or Muay Thai kicking skills in aikido.

Certainly the aspects are there, however, the emphasis is on developing you internally, not externally, which, IMHO, affects things quite dramatically.
