Re: No defence?

I don't really see a defence for that. Not just with Aikido,
You haven't started aikido training yet.

They stand very close to each other, less that a metre away pelvis to pelvis. They talk and look each other in the eyes. No gesturing, no tightness in the body language.
Sounds like a typical "squaring up" situation to me. They're often a precursor to a fight and that the situation went beyond talking shouldn't surprise anyone.

The average human reaction time is, what, around 0.3 seconds, right?
180-200 milliseconds for a simple visual stimulus.
