It's always interesting to see how people give their opinions about the effectiveness or lack of it for techniques which have been practiced for several hundred years.

If your only concern is street effective, then you are a street guy, and you should not be allowed in any decent dojo. Not all techniques are street effective, some of them are meant to develop your brain, improve your ki, teach you harmony...etc. For the ones interested only in the practical aspect, I am not sure if aikido is the right "art" for them.
