Re: I Need Aikido ?'s Answered PLEASE!

yep, and a search through Aikiweb will find a fair bit of discussion on that topic. At the end of the day though I don't think it matters much. You can sub the attacks we do use for a straight punch, a hook etc etc. but people still won't be satisfied because we'll still be telling people to do them with 100% commitment in an isolated fashion rather than dealing with someone who wants to jab and move like a sparring sessions. Because sparring is not what Aikido was designed to deal with.
