Re: Tool attack/defence?
Rather than adopt an aggressive approach and have his security bum rush an overenthusiastic fan, Maynard comes in flips the guy, secures him, and continues the concert, singing through the rear naked choke and (later) the mount. The guy isn't hurt, he enjoys the show and now has an amazing story to tell to everyone he knows. Technically it was BJJ, but that's pretty much what we're all aiming for in aikido, right?
Edit: Oh, and hello to Pete! Nice to see someone from Twin Cities Aikido Center here. TCAC got me started in aikido, and I try to set aside a day for training whenever I'm back home. Maybe I'll see you there some time this summer!
