Re: Tanto Practice - Is true Aikido effective for disarming?

Coming from both Aikido and FMA, IMHO it all depends on who is attacking and who who is disarming. I have experienced it working and I have experienced it failing. Its not the system, its the person. If you have concerns, cross train.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
