why are you fighting so much?
Hi there, I am dubious about the true intention for the start of this thread. Are you really curious about Aikido or just want to tell us all off? I think people who write these things just want to anger up our blood. I have never been in a street fight and never intend to. I do know someone who has had to use his Aikido skills and done so sucessfully(once to thwart some men tring to kidnap his children). But what I do occasionally do is slip on ice or fall down a few stairs. It's the ukemi and the centering that will save your butt in a "real life" situation.
