Combat effectiveness

I leave combat effectiveness to the military. If you want combat, join the Army, Airforce, Navy or Marines. Combat is not self-defense, and legally we are not always permitted to respond to attackers with lethal techniques as one does in combat.

Your comments about irimi and maai only reflect ignorance of aikido and indicate that you just want to ruffle our feathers.
