I honestly believe this outlines a key difference between aikido and other MA's.

Fighting-oriented styles focus on that <1% of your life you are in a brawl. Aikido focuses on the other 99-to-100%.

This is not to imply other MA's are ineffective where aikido is, and vice-versa. But rather, to illustrate that I believe this comparison is much like the apples-oranges.

Just some late-night thoughts.
