Re: ?? Exaggeration in Aikido ??

One tiny addition to the excellent answers above.

Aikido is no magic, practicing it does not promise anyone anything, including the very good practitioners. By practicing Aikido (or any other M.A.) one is improving is odds to survive such an encounter (Bigger attacker, more strength). Another issue is that one is reducing the likelihood of such an encounter ever taking place.
