Re: Poll: How well taught is "being martially effective" in your aikido training?

One of our sensei is a police inspector. Oddly enough, he knows a fair deal about self defense...

However, martial arts (what the style) is just one tool to help oneself be safe. There are others: know you enemy (IE: read statistics, know which areas are dangerous, etc...), being aware of your surrounding and many others.

Hell, all this has been said before in more eloquent terms than mine.

The people who understand, understand prefectly. York Shodokan Aikido
