I think Rick has a bit of a point, although I wouldn't try this myself:-
I was practicing Aikido with someone who had done a bit of Kung Fu and he did some weird technique (I think it was something like the way of the monkey), swooping down in front of me and then lifting my leg to flip me off my feet. It was very effective, even though it you could never do it twicce and it put him in a very prone position. Sometimes the unexpected works because it is just that. (the reason I wouldn't do it is that I assume everyone is a bit scrappy in real situations, kicking, punching and biting anything that comes near them.)
