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

You in your reality you didn't include attacks on women, situations such as muggings, etc. The clip is limited as well but I would say it does include other situations applicable. The clip isn't perfect.
I actually chose the video I chose on purpose. I avoided any examples of ground fighting to avoid the grappling argument.

If I were dealing with attacks on women, know true civilian "ambush" attacks I would have provided a tape on ground figthing since this is where typically go in those situations if you are still conscious. Your attacker wants you incapacitated, on the ground, with him on top executing his will.

But, that opens the whole Ground fighting issue.
