That being said aikido is one of the only martial arts that I have found that is self DEFENSE and not self OFFENSE.
I think you need to spend some mat time with some senior aikido people. While I agree that aikido has different goals from something like krav maga or muay thai, the idea that it's purely defensive is fairly ridiculous. Offense and defense are one and the same.
