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

I've really used what I learned in aikido against someone really trying to take me down and not fall for me. I do think it works. I don't think it works like that video. That video does not represent 99% of all attacks for damn sure.

Lastly, I believe that what I knew wouldn't stand up to someone with a well trained body - and further that when my body is a well trained body - 99% of real attacks won't stand up to me.

I have to say I like the video though. It's the best of its kind I've ever seen.
