Re: Why isn't this showing Aikido as effective?

Great video find Philip, I like it.
It is much much better than most of the aikido adverts out there.

(but ... maybe it could be retitled to : "What to do when camp bloke tries slowly to hit you with a fish outside the gay bar".?)
Joke, don't hit me.

I think it is a good clip and provides a different way at looking at Aikido effectiveness, that has been discussed lately, against common street attacks where the attacker is unaware of the Aikido trained target. The attacks seen in the clip represent 99.9% of what will be experience in the street in most places in the world.
I don't think so.
I mean, not once does it show someone trying to punch the other in the face really really hard, then punch him with the other hand, then punch him some more.
I'm sure someone might think the video shows that, but in my opinion it never does.
