Re: aikido for police
In almost all martial art systems I have studied there have been LEO who have done great with integrating and applying their training to their work. Several of the LEO I train with now in Aikido have excellent technique and attitude. I think its the attitude and application that matter most here.
BTW, I like Koga stuff too. Seen the tapes. Will check out the books. Ledyard Sensei has a nice package too. Sensei Dye put out a nice series through Panther Tapes. The last two will be at the Aiki Expo 2005 in Los Angeles.
