Re: Tanto Practice - Is true Aikido effective for disarming?

I hope that I don't make PTK sound like a school of bloodthirsty assassins or I'm bashing aikido. I'm just giving my 2 cents on this, since PTK has been mentioned and I used to do aikido. I strongly recommend that aikidoka interested in investigating realistic knife defenses and attacks should invite a PTK teacher or student and see how the weapon is realistically applied.
I absolutely concur.....No one will fault you for speaking the truth...except for those ready-made-for-slaughter aikibunnies !

Train well,
