Why am I always the last to reply to a good thread?
First off, I am a very nice guy. Also, my whole reason for sticking around is that no one has been willing to admit that aikido has limitations.
Maybe the reason no-one will admit it because it's not true. Aikido has ZERO limitations to its applications in real life. It appears that in your haste to create a good thread to feed your ego, you neglected to put ANY thought into what the replies from dedicated aikido-kai would be.
