Re: Effectiveness of Aikido in a combat situation
I believe that I always preceded my statements with the reason that "I" chose Aikido. I don't believe that it is a better art then any other. I believe that based on my experience it fits my needs best. And based on the inherent spiritual aspects of Aikido I believe it more closely fulfills the requirements of today's martial artist. Please let me apologize if I did not make myself clear. I have written some very long posts so my meaning may get lost. Not to mention my spelling and punctuation.
