Re: How effective is aikido in self defense?

Thanks for clarifying Graham. How do u restore harmony. Or more specific sense restore is an action, then the effects can be measured and modeled. So, if we can restore something, then it means it is lost. Thus we can model this. What is harmony? What does it mean to restore it? How do we know when it is restored?

Assuming I am in conflict with someone. We are arguing. I have land, he wants it. He feels it is his and I feel it is mine. How do you resolve this as a win win for both? We could split of down the middle, but one or both of us will still feel we compromised.

So what is the feedback loop that says..mission accomplished...I have restored harmony?
