Re: Don’t waste your time practicing AIKIDO

Is it safe to assume when you state, "control the conditions of the fight" you are referring to the Hurticane? I prefer the Kill Face myself, but it would be hard to know which method is superior since you'd never be able to test it in the dojo without a pile of dead/broken students...

Seriously though, I've been blown away at how effective the use of decent body structure while capturing the space can be for dominating the interaction (and we've played with this using empty hand, tanto, bokken, shinai, jo...and hopefully shock-knives sometime soon!)
