My Daito Ryu trumps your Aikido
Personally, I do not like the large circle techniques and wasted movement of Aikido. I am a big believer in grabbing a pressure point, setting up a joint lock, and whether I snap the joint or not is up to the situation; however, I have never found a situation where I had to snap the joint. A little pressure goes a long way to let someone know don't mess with me again.

Horses for courses regarding aikido, I've seen a considerable amount of bullshit in Dai-to Ryu too.
Explain to me what your pressure point tactics mean to an alcohol or drug fuelled individual who's pain receptors are blocked and therefore doesn't feel compelled to comply through pain ? Or, someone who is considerably stronger than you, and or, where those supposed pressure points are concealed through bulk muscle ?
How many actual fights have you encountered which qualifies your opinion ?
I spent a number of years as a Discipline Officer within a Max security prison as part of a crisis intervention team so, I have a considerable amount of hands on experience in dealing with fully resisting, non compliant individuals who have very little to lose in getting involved in violent confrontations. Pressure point tactics DO NOT WORK on determined people.
Subluxating, dislocating and or fracturing joints is pretty easy to do mechanically, setting up however is an entirely different story so this leads me back to my earlier question of how many times you've encountered fights which qualifies your original opinion ?"To sin by silence when one should protest makes cowards out of men".

You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.
