i totally agree with you man, you should be able to handle yourself in any given situation. far too many times ive seen what i like to call hair-dressing aikido because it only looks good it would never work on the streets unless your opponent is a retard. i think this is the main reason for such a high dropout rate at alot of dojos. were i practice we mainly deal with real application however we do go into more classical aspects but it is stated clearly that this is only an exercise not an actual technique. like tenchinage for example, no one would remain holding on to you unless ,like i said "theyre a retard".
