Re: Effectiveness of Aikido in a combat situation
Barring your health issues, a man with all your experience and training should be able to enlighten us with the answer to your question. No disrespect intended, but you are requesting an answer to a question that you should already have the answer to....given your training and experience. Even given the fact that you are new to Aikido, most individuals that crosstrain do so to have a complete repertoire in any situation. The sum of ones training affords them the ability to use that which is most suitable for the situation at hand...or the point of now.
As for the "Nobody Response" from Mr. Leavitt...it is most accurate. Even the "Street Warriors" do not engage the populace on a daily/regular basis.
I hope you realize the answer soon.
