Re: Why do people think Aikido does not work?

When people say aikido does not work in a fight, they mostly mean it does not work in a match...as in kumite or and MMA/MT fight. If you mean an actual street fight I can attest that I was jumped at a party and used sudori and irimi tsuki.

Who is your teacher, if I may ask....Mustard Sensei?

Ichi Go, Ichi Ei!

That is true. But also true that many aikidoka neglect conditioning and do not practice enough unpredictable randori or jiju waza -- which also happens to be true of many karateka.

"The state that separates its scholars from its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards and its fighting by fools."

Yep, its pretty easy to get in a rhythm of training easily.

Like karate schools that don't practice much sparring until testing or tournament times approach, many aikidoka neglect randori practice until just before testing.

Ichi Go, Ichi Ei!
