Re: Did aikido ever fail you?

in general, since most aikidoka nage/tori yudansha do not seem welcome unprepdictable attacks and on developing fight-conditioning I'd be surprised if their aikido "works" at all. However, there are enough tough aikidoka around to lead me to think that many do value "effectiveness" -- I seek to practice with these since folks without annoying them.
