Re: Effectiveness of Aikido in a combat situation

Good thoughts Marlon! O'Sensei I think had a keen understanding of the balance between violence and peace. I think he taught the way he did to help us better understand and appreciate that balance. The practice of aikido really becomes a reconciliation. Have a Happy New Year!
