Re: Don’t waste your time practicing AIKIDO
To Khaled's point about the (street) effectiveness of aikido, someone said "Aikido works - yours doesn't!"
Very simple comment but oh, so true!
Like anything you do - darts, piano, fixing your car - the more you do it (i.e. 'practice'), the better you will get at it. Does anyone know new karatekas or judokas who instantly become 'great' at their art?
As for old men and fat guys, I would love to see 55 year old guys take up karate and be as effective against younger guys as 55 year old newbies who train and take on younger aikidokas.
Peace, you guys!
