Guns and ammo
I've read that some aikidoka (is it the right word? If not, sorry) defense himself with weapons rather than his skills; but I'm reading a book on Aikido that quotes Ueshiba sensei saying you have to break the attack, not your enemy, so I can't understand: is it a wrong quote?
More: (please don't laugh) I remember David Carradine in "Kung Fu": he looked like very "spiritual", I can't remember any opponent killed; now if you see Seagal?s movies..it's a cemetary , and he shoots, too.
So please, make me understand: what are we talking about when we talk of self defense?
Have a good day
