Re: Has Aikido ever helped you in a real fight?

Theres only so much spinning and avoiding they would be able to do until they get smacked in the face. Stop duping yourselves with regards to aikido and self defence people, seriously. For balance etc etc how to walk away from a fight great. But be real with yourselves about it, and more importantly be real with others, new students and such.
That tells me you're making the classic Aikido mistake of sticking to form rather than principle.
