Just because Aikido has striking and grappling techniques does not mean that they work. It all depends on if they are practical and have been tested in actual NHB fights.
With all due respect, NHB bear as much relationship to actual fighting as Olympic fencing does to actual sword work.

AND IN REPONSE TO THE GUY ABOVE. SAYING THAT YOU WOULD USE EYE GOUGES IS A KEY SIGN OF SOMEONE WHO CAN NOT FIGHT FIGHT OR GRAPPLE. IT IS SAD THAT WITH ALL OF THAT TRAINING THAT IS WHAT YOU RELY ON.
In a real fight, you use whatever it takes to survive.

What does any of this have to do with Aikido? If you don't think Aikido has anything to teach you, then don't waste your time.
