Re: Aikido does not work at all in a fight.
Sure. My comment was that the Japanese Godan in that story was probably not hanging out with Chuck Lidell or anyone of his caliber. (And I suppose that the odds are really good that that level won't be randomly attacking you all that often!)
How was his posture? I like to turn when pushed, and enter when pulled myself. I got to try this in more of a randori with Jason Delucia and it was quite an experience (incredible posture). He is very good. I have to go visit him again!
