That being said, here are my questions:
Do you ever think (being an Aikidoka) that you might (in a self defense situation) end up fighting on the ground?
Probably. On the street, anything can happen. Sometimes people may even grab a dog's tail and swing it at you, you have to be prepared for all contingencies you know.

Quote:
If so, what do you do about this?
Anti-Canine Defense, ACD (TM) and Judo if you have time and money.

Quote:
Does Aikido provide any tools for this situation, or do you look to other arts for the answer to this situation?
I look elsewhere for things that aikido do not provide. I do not ask my dentist for tax related question.

Thank you very much.
I try my best.
