I think you are right that the training method is very important factor when your aim is effectiveness in particular situations

There are a few simple and effective techniques in aikido but most are really, really hard to do on anybody who doesn´t take ukemi. Shihonage for instance does not strike me as a battlefield technique.
The battle field for special forces would be different from the battle field for a normal soldier, I guess. Perhaps shihonage can be useful in unarmed situations (in the special forces video it is shown around 1:40).

For the record: my aim is not effectiveness on the battle field.

Being a beginner, my aim is effectiveness on the mat, which already is quite a challenge, particularly with newbies who don't try help you (because they have no clue)
