Re: Martial Ineffectiveness
IMHO, someone with training, even from a purportedly "peaceful" martial art or self defense system, such as Aikido, will outperform someone with no training in anything, John Doe persay, the majority of the time. I first realized that Aikido had changed my mentality concerning "martial effectiveness" when after only 3 weeks of Aikido training I found my self guiding someone's body to the floor, (as a Night Club Bouncer), instead of simply using my size and strength to subdue them in a much more violent encounter, as I had done for 10 years previous. My Aikido works in a fight. Does yours??
