Re: How long does it really take?

The execution of techniques in a practical sense, is probably possible within months if you train hard. No doubt you could brute force an ikkyo, snap a wrist with kotegaeshi, slam someone into the ground with iriminage, etc.

Doing aikido, with correct body form, adherence to the principles, actual blending, resolving it with little or no damage to your opponent etc will take much longer.
