Aikido vs Drunken Boxing

Is Aikido at a disadvantage against a master drunken boxer? i mean, he's already off-balance, wouldn't the aikidoka only succeed in helping him regain his balance? but then the drunken master lost his step.

IM CONFUSED. i wanna start drunken boxing just so i can DRINK

If he were off balance he'd fall over.

Dear Clementino,
If the aikidoka has downed 20 pints [9 litres] of cider /wine and the chinese boxer has only slurped 5 pints [2.5 litres ?]I think it would be safe to say the aikidoka is disadvantaged in a fight. Joe
Ps The aikidoka might well win the fight if he throws the empty beer /cider bottles /cans at the boxer.

Re: Aikido vs Drunken Boxing

One day I hope to invent Drunken Aikido. We'd be the only dojo that has nomikai before class.

Let silence be my mantra.

Re: Aikido vs Drunken Boxing

Perhaps utilize Biiru waza to achieve the right state of drunkedness?

Re: Aikido vs Drunken Boxing

I have not studied drunken boxing, but I have looked at it a few times. It seems to me that they are not off balance at all, if you pay attention you see their core stays centered most of the time.

Re: Aikido vs Drunken Boxing

I have seen a lot of this style vs style....
I always say it's the Man woman behind the style, not the style.
