Re: Is Aikido effective for police?
The rifle and pistol techniqurs are the same whether you are the man holding the weapon or not. It is a matter of who claims the other's center with irimi. This stuff is the essence of my no-sword style. Obviously, at arm's reach, no-sword style is safer against an M-4 than it is a 4 foot razor blade. Only one real place the weapon can kill you and there are more ways to grab hold of it.
The Aiki Perp taking out 3 agents will be taken off Youtube in 3 days. I just do not want the general public seeing it. It is real rudimentary jujitsu movement and can be easily duplicated by non aikidoka.
