Re: Aiki strategy outside the dojo

Sorry Guys, but if a person, or rather a group of people, come up to me in the street with intentions to hurt me, I'm not gonna let them off lightly. In other words I would use aiki not only to defend myself, but also to discourage them from getting up and trying to attack again. If it came down to it, I would probably hurt them, if thats what it takes. However in the dojo I am very courteous to my Uke, and my Nage.
