not so fast

I guess the point is that Aikido, although is very interesting to study (because of body mechanics, joint locks, etc.) is not really an effective martial art. Since a modestly trained boxer form a no name gym could defeat most of the Aikido masters.
Even if said aikido master was holding a sword? which by the way, is part of any good aikidoist's arsenal.
