Re: A defense of Aiki

Since Aikido is primarily a system of self defense, training with no regard to the attacker is futile. It makes it another art.

I have correct feeling a lot of the time as a result of my training. When I lose it I get it back as soon as I can.

The self defense situations I have been in required that I have mind body co-ordination and total attention being given to the situation. Being the strongest women in the land would not have helped me.

Our training method works for us. And discussion is important. However, we don't all train for the same reasons.
