Re: Is Aikido effective for police?
I always enjoyed watching Steve Segall's punch...
The one he did in "Above the Law" where he walked up to a guy and blasted him in the solar plexus. His weight shift, timing, breath, were in perfect form.
As for finger locks, "what happens if "Uhhh Mondo don't care".
Chokes are decent. Trained fighters can survive blood chokes for quite a while.
Juji gatame (straight arm bar) Now that is a great technique. Upward bent arm (ude garami) is sensational. It works against the infraspinatus and Teres group. Those small muscles behind your shoulder joint that you just cannot train very well.
