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

Probably, so I stand corrected.

Can I also ask for a real rape video to see if the anti-rape sd courses really work?
That's a bit of a hyperbole. I don't think your average fist-fight equates to this and I think that's what is being described here. I'm usually the first person to tell people how utterly stupid I think fighting is. It's glorified everywhere and has probably been since the first person took power by force, but I get it, fighting and encouraging people to fight is bad...I'd say it with greater force except this is a public forum so my normal language wouldn't be appropriate. Suffice it to say I hate have no idea how much. I chose Aikido in large part for this very reason.
That said, yes if there is video of someone getting attacked and defending him/herself with having only Aikido as his/her training, I would want to watch it. Not so much (Not at all, just so we're perfectly clear) with the rape scenario, thanks.
