Re: Mixing Aikido with other martial arts
Thanks all (and thanks for the link!)
I see how studying two martial arts would reduce the amount of time spent progressing if time was an issue and unfortunately in my case it is.
Be that as it may I think Aikido takes a considerable amount of time to reach a level of proficiency where you can apply it in a self defense situation. (Or perhaps where you are comfortable doing so)
I think I need to balance my long term Aikido training with something thats effective self defense wise, which can be taught or picked up quicker. If I can blend them both together then even better.
Man this site really is worth the time to contribute to and learn from!
