Re: Poll: Which art do you think is more physically effective - judo or aikido?

For me aikido is far more physically effective...because I don't know judo.

Someone once asked a friend of mine who is a shooting enthusiast what was the best pistol for self-defense, he replied "the one you have". A .22 caliber (small for those non-shooters) pistol in the hands of someone competent in its use is more effective than a .44 super mag in the hands of someone who couldn't hit a barn from the inside


"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
