I'll ignore for the moment that this thread is 12 years old. 'Into' Aikido or actually train it? Your friends aren't representative of Akidoka in general. What they are demonstrating is their lack of skill not your superiority. How do you actually know that? Yeah everyone has a plan until the battle starts. You can't generalise boxers anymore than you can anyone else. Boxers have tactics for fights where their opponent is chosen and they've has a chance to study how they fight. Boxers tend to be no better than anyone else when attacked randomly by people they don't know. Welcome to MT by the way.
