Re: How would aikido fare in an actual fight?
By the tripping thing, I mean he was trying to trip me using some of his moves or something. But he failed and I stood, so he thought that Aikido taught me not to fall like that. Hard to explain.
And we mean friendly sparring, but contact. I don't wanna kick his ass up and down the floor, or the other way around.
And Im thinking of not using Aikido since, as it seems, its not for fighting (or what you guys are saying). So I'll give the art respect in not using it in something I have seen that it is against.
