What do you suggest I depend on when it is my job to control and remove violent people without injuring them? I seriously train in a serious school in a serious art that is perfect for what I do. Do I have other tools at my disposal when I'm working an event? Sure. I've got a radio, the rest of my crew, I usually carry a knife for cutting zipties, some of the other people carry tasers.... Mostly, I have me, my brain, and aikido. I've only bounced for a handful of years, and have only stopped a couple hundred fights, maybe, but so far, what I've got has been enough. Am I saying I'm invincible? Nope. Am I saying I've successfully used aikido to keep me and my bad folks safe? Yup. This shit works and I'm sticking with it.
Sounds pretty powerful. Would you keep it up if it didn't work?
