But I really wish people would stop making threads like "I used Aikido in a fight." - "Oh? How did it go?" - "Well, someone was being really aggressive, and I calmed them down. That's true Aikido."
People need validation. They've spent lots of time, effort and money in their training so they fall into some kind of post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy attributing to Aikido their success at avoiding fighs instead of common sense, education or fear.
