Re: Aikido no good for self defense??

Aikido is entirely defensive in nature - it has no structure for attack.
sen-sen no sen, means you anticipate an attack, then attack first (hit the other guy first). To me this is an offensive move, but I guess that can be argued, but I see many ways that aikido can be used for attacking.
