Please. Thanks.
Wow, I'm amazed at the (offended) responses to a simple inquiry. What's the problem? Someone asked the Combat effectiveness of Aikido and all of a sudden, everyone get's defensive. Hmmm, wonder why that is?

Ok, so:

1: a fight or contest between individuals or groups
2 : conflict , controversy
3 : active fighting in a war : action

Aikido: a Japanese art of self-defense employing locks and holds and utilizing the principle of nonresistance to cause an opponent's own momentum to work against him

enough: occurring in such quantity, quality, or scope as to fully meet demands, needs, or expectations

regularity-something that is regular - constituted, conducted, scheduled, or done in conformity with established or prescribed usages, rules, or discipline

effective- producing a decided, decisive, or desired effect

Now, your turn: Answer these simple questions: Have you? Then is this topic moot for you?
