    Daito Ryu Aiki-jujutsu the best for self defense?

    I need help once a again well the thing is I am trying to make my girlfriend leave the mcdojoesqe where she trains and wanted to find a martial art fully and effectively centered on self defense
    In one post Omega mentioned Aiki jujutsu as the best self defense system
    What do you think is Aiki-jujutsu effective in the street
    Omega if you see this post would you give me more info about the style
    Thank you all

    Your style field says Kyokushin. Stick with that and bring her on board.

    I can't say anything about the style without knowing the instructor.

    From six years ago:

    I'm imagining a fight between a Daito-Ryuer and a BaguaZhangista for the right to have "steel" join their McDojo/Kwoon/whatever. One is a ponytail clad seagal wannabe, who worships the militaristic values he "sees" in the ideals of the samurai, the other worshipping the mushy bullshit that he thinks is taoism.


    BGZ attempts a properly combat oriented beng chuan, attempting to put as much fa jing into the punch as he can. Unfortuenately, Beng Chuan is cantonese slang for "goofy reverse punch".
    DTRY, having trained for this (and an overhead knife hand) his whole life, is momentarily paralyzed. Luckily, the loadup time of that punch allows him to mentally browse through his catalogue of techniques and he settles on stepping out of the line of force and using nikkyo (outside wrist twist) combined with a nukite strike to the atemi point under BGZ's bicep.
    He succesfully steps away with a movement that sets his hakama to billowing. BGZ counters by using his Qi (in the strictest sense of mental focus and proper biomechanics, mind you) to resist the twisty wristy, known in non-mongoloid as "muscling your way out of it". Neither party is surprised when DTR's attempt to finger BGZ's nonexistent muscles fails.
    There is a brief and comical explosion of wrist grabs vs. chi sao and qinna, as they both step around in elaborate patterns, neither one getting past their opponent's forearms. Sometimes these big steps are halted in mid motion by the reality of an opponent who is (however innefectually) holding on to you, so their upper bodies bend backwards or to the side as their legs keep going, which is the kind of thing that would give any Judoka a big throbbing one. Yet neither executes a throw, trip or takedown because, as we all know, you never want to go to the ground on the street (despite the rather goofy ground wrist locks in DTR's curriculum).
    Stalemated, they break their "clinch". Suddenly they both remember that their arts are about redirecting their opponent's energy.
    Both fervently hoping for another attack to borrow the energy from, they repeat the previous stepping patterns in an attempt to draw a strike or something from their opponent. They never come any closer than five feet.
    Unknowingly, they are actually sucking out the heavenly qi around them. A black, crackling void is forming between them...
    Then they are instantly vaporized by a Protoss Dragoon who has understandably mistaken them for Dark Templar.

    Daito Ryu with a legitimate lineage is pretty hard to find. Some people like to use the term a lot because its 'old school' and sounds a little more ancient....and simply because its harder to find, thus making it more marketable/valuable.

    From an outsider's view, a Yoshinkan student, and an atendee at a one singular DRAJJ seminar...I find it a very stylized martial art...like Yoshinkan. There are strict ettiquette, and its very old school. Also, they aren't afraid of a little good old fashion 'lovin on the mat. Whereas aikido has dilluted itself to the point where teachers will pander to students too afraid to test in front of a group of people by testing them during class...DRAJJ maintains its traditional roots of being something that forces its students to grow, on a personal level, by making them do **** that is difficult, and not always in their comfort level. I love all that ****, but I'm a traditionalist. Anyway, may have a self-defense mindset...on some level...but it is a martial art, not a women's self defense class. Its not going to give overnight street skills or anything. And, like Omega said, its really all about the teacher...and that's true pretty much with anything. Again, I am no aikijujitsu guy...so anything I say takes deferrment to Yoj, and others with experience.
