    Real aikido street fight

    I train Aikido, and we train to break necks, arms, legs, backs, teeth, pock out eyes, ripe your hair off, stamp on your feet, bit, spit, throw, hit, punch, elbow, handplam, kick, knee and soo on, and it's all a part old school aikido... Wrist locks are effektive, and if grabing each other on...

    Real aikido street fight

    Just my point..... Since Aikido is diverse compared to some styles, there are many differnet usages; you'll find using the term Aikido as a gerneral term not adequit. It's that Aikido is so diverse that gives it so many usages. /Terje

    Real aikido street fight

    Aikido has many ways, and depending on person and style atemi will differ. I've done styles without atemi, and styles with alot of atemi. You state that most of the techniques imply to catch the arm.. nope is my answer to that. If that is what you got from training aikido, your barking up the...

    Real aikido street fight

    Maybe we should define what Aikido is.... Aikido is many different styles, just like saying "car". A car isn't just a car, some cars are made for road driving, others made for off-roading, while others are just for show case. Some have a bit of all in in. Some of them you wash the car, making...

    2 Questions About Aikido.

    I think your thinking of a fight that has to start before the "grab". But really a "fight" can start with the grab going from soft to hard, or even starting at hard. My experience is that teaching SD for institutions (SP?), some people start off with a person holding them (and that is...

    2 Questions About Aikido.

    Would you mind elaborating on this. I would beg to differ, since it really depends on the "fight". I'm thinking that maybe your commenting on a "street -fight", but there are many oth kinds of "fights", or physical confrontations. /Yari

    Aikido : Master Shioda Gozo Taijutsu

    This is good. He has some good ukes. I've never had the pleasure to pratice with him, but if thos techniques are sound (as in holding the attackers hands/arms), the attarcker will get sprained/broken wrist/arms if he dosen't move. Some of the them more suddel than others. Some of the...

    Erroneous Aikido, The Amazing Story of..

    Well, there is many styles of Aikido, and even more people. You'll find rotten apples anywhere. Just like the people in you friendly neibourhood(sp?). Ki and precognition, are not mystical for me. They are theories that are created to understand something that can't be explained more easly. If...

    Erroneous Aikido, The Amazing Story of..

    I believe there is no one set way that will fix any situation (like a jab). In all styles (and even them that say there not styles), you work with basics. This is the fundamentals for how you will handle reality when it comes knocking on the door. Therefor you will not find a technique that is...

    Yes, anything to emphesize reality, and make sure that you practice accordanly to what you might experience, is for me a good idea. /Yari

    Erroneous Aikido, The Amazing Story of..

    Hi There is one thing I though about, the part that uke learns how to move compared to what tori does. This is normal human behavior...nobody wants to stand in harms way. But isn't this making uke move in a way that non-uke's would move? And isn't it going to create a stylistisk way of...

    Starting out

    If you can, try and find somebody who does Aikido and is a corrections officer , police or anybody that has to step into the pysical conflict, and uses Aikido. There are people who've practiced it and discarded it. I don't know why, but I would guess that they couldn't get the Aikido style...

    Erroneous Aikido, The Amazing Story of..

    Your on to something very important here. I bellive since you don't know when your attacker is "finished" you'll never know for sure that the attack is over. and giving the attacker a second chance (knowing know that he knows you can defend yourself), is going to be hard. So it mght be true...

    Moving from the center

    Hi I would go for the limbo dance "technique". Hold a bo across infront of them, ans ask them to go forward. If the stick is low enough they can push the hara forward. You could also tie a belt to his/her belt and pull while doing this. If the persons lacks a feel of hara /you need this to...

    Practicality

    Yes it would, but the "fight" would look like aikido, and poeple would just state; That's not Aikido.... I bellive that Aikido isn't the techniques that ou see, but there a a physical extension of Aikido. By doing them your praticing principals in a kind of theory state. I bellive that any...

    Kata in Aikido

    I do agree. At to put it at point; there is no reference. It just might as well be karate in aikido as aikido in karate. Gettign back to the start, I think it's important to remember that the only way we can learn is through seeing , and evaluating our own actions through a response system...

    How to you handle punches and kicks

    I've been off for at while. Thanks for your answers. But I can't help myself but think "move away from the attack" is an answer? I do agree, and some have elaborated and given good answers. For me an attack is defined by what comes before the attack. This will define how i can handle the...

    Most important thing

    I belive in that too, but this momentum is neither "good" or "bad". It's a way of handling an issue. If its the right way or not is not defined by how you see it, but how the result is, and that is how your "oppponent" sees it too. I think your comparing to different things, just my view on...
