Re: Have you actually used Aikido?

Quote:
Honestly, after reading Meditations on violence, which I'm sure many have read, I was a little discouraged with Aikido because the author makes the statement that when under assault, you lose fine motor skills and complex motor skills are extremely dampered.
Unless Miller has extensive experience in either using aikido, or fighting aikidoka, I would be encouraged. Retaining your motor skills depends on how excited you get.

I haven't trained enough in Aikido to find such techniques so I'm curious as to how Aikido does pressure.
Quite well, evidenced by the screaming.
