Re: How effective is aikido in self defense?

The problem I suspect is that many Aikidoka do not seem to train beyond the years of foundation building of cooperative & predictable exchange of skills: None or not much creative sparring/randori, for example. (I'd be delighted to be wrong about this notion)

so I'm looking for riot-poice-Aikido/Aikijutsu in my 'hood.
