Re: Effectiveness of Aikido in a combat situation

My question stands- Who has been in combat and used Aikido with enough regularity to say for sure if Aikido is effective in combat?
Okay, here is your answer. Nobody.

Nobody I have ever met meets the criteria you laid out.

So what is your conclusion based on this answer?

I think everyone I know in Aikido would back up this "Nobody" answer as well.

Again, that being the answer...what is your response or conclusion?
