Re: Aikido does not work at all in a fight.
Aikido was never designed for a deliberate fight. It was meant (technically not counting the spiritual aspect in) , to defend yourself while given the option not to hurt your attacker. That's one of the genius inventions behind Aikido.
So if the starter of the thread is crazy enough to use Aikido to pick a streetfight........
But yet, I say we still haven't seen AIkido at its fullest potential in a real situation. So to say it doesn't work is gross underestimation
