Re: Practical Aikido DVD - Robert Koga

Koga Sensei took Aikido training and made it into something that would work for law enforcement agents who usually don't train. It is very effective technique, but it isn't pretty. He also covers baton techniques and handcuffing in his training. If you want "down and dirty" defensive tactics with a strong Aikido flavor, you won't go wrong. He is the real deal and is very candid about not teaching "classical Aikido". He is the real deal in defensive tactics work.
