Re: Aikido does not work at all in a fight.
Doesn't work? Anyone who understands it and is doing it right can stop very substantial aggression and power in its tracks, and toss em, or down them and hit like a Freakin truck with any part of their body.
I think the answer is to stop doing Aikido and learn to do Aiki...do, the way it was supposed to be done. Its holds tremendous promise in the hands of the right people.
