Re: Aikido does not work at all in a fight.

I feel no need to "convince" those (not implying Torres here, uh) who prefer seeing in this accusation so frequently flung at Aikido just a mere instance of (basically) nonsense. If they are satisfied with such an explanation, to me it is fine.
I was just asking the "accusers" for two things: (1) To not cast such broad aspersions as there is a wild variety of skills in aikido (as well as other arts), to make their claims more specific; and (2) To qualify their claims by showing their understanding aiki, aikido and fighting. Am I being so unreasonable?

The last person that called me by my last name was my high school principal. *shudder*
