Re: Aikido no good for self defense??

years ago my buddy (now aikido sandan) was joking with our judo/jujitsu instructor about a bullet hole in one of the dojo's windows (hey, tampa's a rough town). my buddy said - i see that none of your students was hit when the shooting occurred. the old judoka replied "we did better still, we weren't even here when it happened"

that is self defense.
How is it self-defense when the Judoka's students weren't even aware of the attack ?
It's just a cute story, one amongst many who pretend to be deep and have some relation to the subject - while in fact they aren't and don't.
