With all due respect Sir...Perhaps in your Aikido it's considered "false propaganda" to use Aikido to fight back. Either Aikido is Budo and effective against other Martial Arts or it's not...
If this is the case He should go learn something else Why practice something that will only get you hurt?
And with all due respect Sir, you left out the "quick learning curve" part of my comment in your haymaker reply.
But IŽll step aside and let you charge ahead... let me just point out that this topic has been discussed already not so long ago in the thread " I heard, that Aikido is teaching more than fighting. And a question about home train." under "General".
Why donŽt you visit that thread and refute everybody there?
