Been noticing quite a bit of dissension towards KI Aikido on this forum.
Is it because many preceive it as ineffective
Can't KI Aikido be street effective?
May God bless!
It isn't rocket science Ed.
Go invite some average people in (who are not trained fighters) to attack your teacher.
Then invite in some decent fighters and ask them them to tune your teacher.
Then answer your own question and stay or leave.
In case you don't already know this, most martial artists suck. They can neither fight well, or handle physical stresses well. Many of the "famous" teachers we follow were nothing more than budo wallpaper...also rans in their day. So, it is no surprise that those who followed them are nothing more than highly ranked
wallpaper themselves. I suspect it's always been that way.
