Re: Aikido And The Law
To simplify matters (because I'm a simple Soul) it appears that as far as self defence and the law is concerned we have two basic priciples.
1 You can use 'reasonable force' to defend yourself.
2 What amounts to 'reasonable force' is a question of fact, unique to every circumstance.
Everything else is built on these two pillars with lots of examples as to what has and has not been regarded as 'reasonable force' in a variety of circumstances.
