Talking Re: Did aikido ever fail you?

I paraphrase " It's not that Aikido doesn't work. It's your Aikido that doesn't work."

How many times have we all been there in practice ? In a real situation who knows.

1) don't allow yourself to get into a situation
2) If you do get out safely. Run. Cry. Joke. Give them what they want.

" They have already lost by attacking you." (another paraphrase) Why gamble by putting yourself in danger unless your life is on the line and no other option exists.

PS Suggestion: Wear good running shoes, maintain a good aerobic base and run like hell!
