i would usually try. but my opponent always gets to riled up and throws a punch. im just worried i wont be able to use aikido im only yellow belt but i got my orange belt grading in 3 months. and i want to be able to have the mind state to use it when the need arrives
The most Aiki approach is to not get into the fight in the first place!
We don't go around looking for opponents, or get people 'riled up' so they turn to throwing a punch
There WILL be consequences for getting into a fight at school, so please think of that!!
Aikido teaches us to get along with people so well that we don't need to get into fights
