Re: effectiveness: experience on learning

After a quick look in the dictionary, one could legitimately define "martially effective" as capable of producing a result suitable for a warrior.
This definition raises some questions:
What would constitute a result suitable of a warrior?
And exactly what capabilites does the warrior require?

In a real fight:
* If you make a bad decision, you die.
* If you don't decide anything, you die.
Aikido teaches you how to decide.
