Re: Is Aikido effective for police?
this thread has produced some good conversation. i'm a little curious if anyone knows why o-sensei chose to omit some of the pain compliance aspects of aikijujutsu like finger locks and the such? the article made a few points about that being one of their differences. locally there is an aikijujutsu guy who has mentioned a lot of that art is meant to maim and even kill, but there are techniques that people in law enforcement use for pain compliance only. i'm interested in knowing what specifically he used as his basis for techniques to keep, discard, and change if one of you wise fellers' know anything.
