In the UK i would reckon on two equual 3/4 arms lengths as the natural personal space for an adult conversation if you didnt know the other person and maybe as a natural prsonal space still of a good arms length, even in a fairly noisey invironment
but here in portugal the natural personal...
and a clip of Hapkido, which is closer too, to the way aikido would have gone if o sensai had not changed it as he aged, and now his sons have only taken the part they were taught
O sensais aikido changed to suit his age and his change in moral standings, his sons only saw a part of it and...

if you put a lock on a willing (compliant) person then its easy, the more non compliant they become, the tougher it becomes
obviously we cant take a lot of things to the extremes, but for example a bulletman is trained to react as close as to...

I have covered a few in aikido , but they are over complicated for a 4 day course
Now if someone is attacked from behind...
theres a load more Tony Blauer clips on here
i like some of his concepts and he was one of the first to use some of the base techniques (flinch, spear etc)
I tend to be ble to control it, but there are one or two silly things that set me off, where control is nearly impossible (SOMEONE WAGGING A FINGER IN FRONT OF ME - often makes me see red, even friends and family) but i think these were things that stemmed from things in the past. But in general...
can any one explain waveform strikes and their application and also anything about the Multiplied Force Fighting System and russell stutley
i cant seem to find out very much about these apart from a few clips on you tube
i think yoshinkan is quitecombative..........but really any of them are ok once you understand the principles
trouble is, from a self defence perspective, it takes a long time to get the techniques right
I teach a self defence class and short courses as well as aikido and TBH i couldnt give...
