Aikido used by its self, in a real life situation
Hi guys, im very new to Aikido and trying to learn as much as I can about it. I have only been to a few classes, and already im amazed with it. When showing some videos of Aikido training to my girlfriend, she replied with "looks fake, like wwf". And when showing them to my friend he said "looks staged, I would like to see it used in a real attack situation". Im not questioning Aikido, but I would like to know if and how many of you out there have been put in a situation where your Aikido training needed to be used in the phisical sense. Any one?
